Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sally Ann / Ballad of Sally Anne
Subject: Lyr Add: BALLAD OF SALLY ANNE
With love in his heart and flowers in his hand,
Johnny proposed to Sally Ann.
Sally shivered when she said,
"I'll love you 'til the day I'm dead."

CHORUS: Who's gonna dance with Sally Ann?
Who's gonna hold her trembling hand?
When the fiddler takes the stand,
Who's gonna dance with Sally Ann?

Johnny got married in his one good suit,
But the ride from town bore bitter fruit.
Down by the road you could hear her cry.
As he hung from a tree, she watched him die. CHORUS

Darkened shadows cross the floor
As ghostly lovers dance once more.
You can feel them in the room
When the fiddler plays that tune. CHORUS

Sally attends every wedding round here,
Lookin' for her Johnny dear.
When wedding bells ring in the town,
A ghostly virgin strolls the grounds. CHORUS
