This isn't much different from the Lomax version Barry Finn posted up top, but I think this version is worth posting, too.

Sally Ann

        C                    Am
Did you ever see a muskrat, Sally Ann?
C                  G
Pickin' a banjo, Sally Ann,
C
Draggin' his slick tail through the sand?
G                      C
I'm gonna marry you, Sally Ann.

Chorus:
C
I'm gonna marry you, Sal, Sal,
G                     C
I'm gonna marry you, Sally Ann.

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

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

Pass me the brandy, Sally Ann, (twice)
I'm going 'way with Sally Ann,
Great big wedding up, Sally Ann.
