The lively and very popular hambo is a 19th-century offshoot of the gammal polska. The Norwegian dance analogous to the Swedish polska is the pols.

Story behind the song
It sounds like Uncle Walter says this song is "an 8-Bar Hambone, not 16 bars." My cousin Marynell reports "Harry Jr. Learned this Hambo tune from the Thorsness family. It’s a Norweigian dance. [At the Texas Folklife Festival in San Antonio where we performed since 1979 , I ran into a Norweigian fiddler and he played this tune exactly for the Norweigian dancers. "
