The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music


Sail Away Ladies

If ever I get my 5 new house 1 done, Sail away, ladies, sail away,
I'll give my old one 5 to my 1 son, Sail away, ladies, sail away.

Chorus
Don't you rock 'em, 4 da-dee-o, Don't you rock 'em, 1 da-dee-o
Don't you rock 'em, 5 da-dee-o, Sail away ladies, 1 sail away

Children, don't you weep and cry,...
You're gonna be angels by and by,...

Come along, girls, and go with me,...
We'll go back to Tennessee,...

I got a letter from Shiloh town,...
Ol' Saint Louie is a-burning down,...

I chew my tobacco and I spit my juice,...
I love my daughter but it ain't no use,...

It’s on Strum Machine!

Play & sing along with Sail Away Ladies (or any song you type in) in any key, at any speed, with Strum Machine. You have to see it to believe it. :-)
