Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sally Ann / Ballad of Sally Anne
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sally Ann
That 'strange fruit' verse by Mark Johnson (Posted far above) doesn't fit "Sally Ann." His song needs a new title.
The verse has nothing to do with the old folk and fiddle song Sally Ann(e) (Lomax, FSNA; Sharp/Karpeles; Fiddlin' Johnny Carson, etc.).
See Bluegrass Messenger, Sally Ann- version 1 Sharp, 1918 (and notes for vers. 2, 3. 4):
