Ames Brothers – The Man With The Banjo lyrics

Who's that comin', who's that strummin'?
That's the man with the banjo
For a penny, he'll play any song
That's happy and gay

Folks all smile and stop awhile
Because the man with the banjo
Makes their troubles burst like bubbles
Chasing worries away

^See the children running after

While he plays his merry song
All their hearts are filled with laughter
As they tag along

Shadows fallin', sandman's callin'
Here goes the man with the banjo
Gaily hummin', softly strummin'
On his merry old way

(Repeat ^ to end)
