Subject: Lyr Req: Sally in the Garden
Do any of you know the lyrics for "Sally in the Garden"? It's an
old fiddle (or banjo) tune usually played in C minor. I have the lyrics to "Sally Gardens", but I'm not sure if it's the same song.

Since it's played in a minor key, it is probably one of those "Willy
done her wrong, compromised her virtue, shot her, dragged her all around and around by her hair and tossed her in the river just above the old mill on the river which runs thru Knoxville town" songs. In other words a love song.... Thanks. Tom
