Subject: RE: Origins: 'Sarah Sitting in Shoe Shine Shop'
I know a different version recorded by Iain MacKintosh and Hamish Imlach on 'Live In Hamburg' (1986):

SUSIE
(Trad / Imlach / MacKintosh)

Susie, Susie, sitting in a shoeshine shop
All day long she sits and shines
All day long she sits and shines
Susie, Susie, sitting in a shoeshine shop
She sits and shines and shines and sits
And sits and shines and shines and sits
Susie, Susie, sitting in a shoeshine shop

Tommy, Tommy, toiling in a tailor's shop
All day long he fits and tucks
All day long he fits and tucks
Tommy, Tommy, toiling in a tailor's shop
He fits and tucks and tucks and fits
And fits and tucks and tucks and fits
Tommy, Tommy, toiling in a tailor's shop


I nearly chased them off the stage the only time they dared sing it live when I was in the audience! I hate being called Susie ...
