Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sally Ann / Ballad of Sally Anne
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sally Ann
The version of "Sally Ann" that I am most familiar with is the fiddle tune with a few words chanted every now and then. Probably the best known recording is the one by Tommy Jarrell, but everybody who lives within 50 miles of Mt. Airy NC (or goes to the Mt Airy fiddlers convention) knows the tune. Nancy and Bill Sluys (of the Pilot Mtn. Bobcats) refer to it as the "Surry County National Anthem." Mike-- is this the version you're looking for?
