Thread Name: ADD: Sally Ann / Ballad of Sally Anne
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sally Ann
The first set I posted came from here:

Then, this morning I found this one:

Sally Ann

My true love did breathe by the Sally Ann just barely
That while walkin' through town only my heart
did hear him
In views of the city
There ain't many folks by the
Sally Ann so pretty
That while walkin' through town,
many a twisted features
Made a terrible beauty
And then I knew
And then I knew, I'd been there before

One thing you must know by the
Sally Ann directly
Is that the pockets
don't hold any more sunken treasures
After baptism by whiskey
But when leavin' the bar by the Sally Ann
just barely
That old angel may allow light from above
the mountain
And red brick walls blooming, you may see

And then you'll know
And then you'll know, you've been there before

It's a Rufus Wainwright song.
