The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music


Sally Ann [core]

Going to the wedding, Sally Ann
Going to the wedding, Sally Ann
Sift that meal and save your bran
I'm going home with Sally Ann

Chorus
I'm gonna marry you Sal, Sal
I'm gonna marry you Sally Ann

Did y'ever see a muskrat, Sally Ann
Did y'ever see a muskrat, Sally Ann
Draggin' its slick tail through the sand
Great big wedding up, Sally Ann

Shake that little foot, Sally Ann
Shake that little foot, Sally Ann
Great big wedding up, Sally Ann
I'm going home with Sally Ann

Pass me the brandy, Sally Ann
Pass me the brandy, Sally Ann
I'm goin' away with Sally Ann
Great big wedding up, Sally Ann

Make my living in sandy land
Make my living in sandy land
Make my living in sandy land
I'm gonna marry you, Sally Ann
