Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sally Ann / Ballad of Sally Anne
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sally Ann
That's what i want to know! Thanks for the lyrics...I'm not sure if they're quite the same as on my CD, which is by a local band. I kind of guessed at the second verse, after many listenings:

Johnny got married in his one good suit
But the ride from the church his horse him threw (?)
Down by the road you could hear her cry
As he hung from a tree she watched him die.

But, as I say, I don't know that this is right. (If it is, it's a really strange grammatical construction!)
