DT Lyrics:





Subject: Tune Req: Does anyone know a song Sally G or D
From: olddude

When I was a kid, there was an old timer that would sit on his porch and play a song, somewhere in the chorus was the words

"and dance to my darling Sally G or Sally D"

does this ring a bell with anyone, going nuts trying to find out if such a song exist or did he write it or is it a trad song. I think it is the old timey country or hobo woodie Guthrie era

Probably not the right one, but worth noting, from This Site?

SALLY GO 'ROUND THE SUNSHINE
traditional song, adapted and arranged by Suzi Shelton

Sally, go 'round the sunshine, Sally, go 'round the moon,
Sally, go 'round the sunshine, all on an afternoon;
I said, "Now, Sally, go 'round the sunshine, Sally go 'round the moon,
Sally go 'round the sunshine, all on an afternoon!"

I said, "Now, Sally, dance around with me!"
"Now, Sally, dance around with me!"
"Now, Sally, dance around with me!"
"Now, Sally, don't fall down with me!"

SUre it isn't Molly D? Kingston Trio did it, "Here we go 'round again, singin a song about Molly D, Far away, I know not where,
She's the gal who waits for me."

one verse mentions another gal, Sally Brown

There is an old banjo tune called "Sally Goodin" - not sure if this is the same but it sounds very similar.

you maybe on to something, does it have the verse dance to my darling Sally something in it do you know. The old guy played banjo all the time also. Heck I was about 10 and since I am 55 now that would be 45 years ago so I can only hear bits in my head, he would also blow the same tune on his harmonica

would be fun to track it down though

Dan, if you put "Sally Goodin" in the Super Search and click Go, you will find lyrics in the DT and several threads which make mention of it or are related in some way. Lot of diggin' to do there.:-)

The only snippet of lyrics my banjo tutor gives is:-

Had a piece of pie
And I had a piece of puddin'
Gave it all away
Just to see Sally Goodin
