The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Sally Goodin

I had a piece of pie, I had a piece of puddin'
I gave it all away just to see my Sally Goodin

I walked that road 'til the road got muddy
I hugged Sally Goodin 'til she couldn't stand steady

Possum in the stump, rabbit in the hollow
Pretty girl at our house, as fat as she can swallow

Can't fool a coon, can't fool a possum
Can't fool a coon, on a huckleberry blossom

I looked down the road, I saw Sally comin'
I thought to my soul, I'd kill myself a-runnin'

The ToneWay Project also offers songbooks, CDs, and a free online video series for learning to play music by ear.
