    "Buffalo Gals" is a traditional American song, written and published as "Lubly Fan" in 1844. The song beckoned a young woman of that name to come out and dance. Although credited to Cool White, the stage name of blackface minstrel John Hodges, it was most likely adapted from other song sources. The words were frequenly localized as the popular song moved about the United States with traveling minstrel troupes: Charleston Gals, New York Gals, etc. By 1948, Buffalo Gals had become the preferred version.
