Subject: Lyr Add: SALLY ANN^^
Got this version on a tape a few years ago. Don't know who does it.

They're ain't no body gonna ever stop me,
Sally Ann
They're ain't nobody gonna ever change
The doggone way I am.

I'm gonna rob & steal & run & hide,
Sally Ann
Strap my pistols to my side,
Sally Ann

Born way down in Grayson county,
Sally Ann
Born of a Pentacostal
Cotton mill hand

Raised up rough and rowdy,
Sally Ann
They're ain't nobody gonna ever change
The doggone way I am.

Whoa oh oh, Sally Ann
Whoa oh oh, the doggone way I am (2X)

Gonna go ride with Stonewall Jackson,
Sally Ann
Gonna saddle my horse 'n try to save
Old Dixie Land.

Some folks say we're gonna lose her,
Sally Ann
But they're ain't nobody gonna ever change
The doggone way I am.

Fredricksburg, on to (?).
Sally Ann.
They're ain't no Yankee gonna ever stop us,
Sally Ann

Stonewall's down & old Lee's worried,
Sally Ann
Stonewall's down & gonna be buried,
Sally Ann

Whoa........etc 2x

Wilderness fires is bad & blazing,
Sally Ann
Ain't got no shoes & I'm still raiding,
Sally Ann

Blood runs free, down at the ankles(?),
Sally Ann
The air is (?) full of danger,
Sally Ann

A Yankee rifle's got me down,
Sally Ann
Looks like I'm gonna go on to
Glory land

Keep my words by your side gal,
Sally Ann
Hell, they're ain't no body gonna ever change
The doggone way I am

Whoa .......etc. 2x

Soldier boy's gonna come home now,
Sally Ann
Pick you one & settle down gal,
Sally Ann

I'll be waitin' over in glory,
Sally Ann
Dixie Land lives forever,
The way I am.

Whoa......etc.
