Subject: Garage Saling lyrics & composer?
From: PHJim
Date: 27 May 10 - 10:44 AM

I recall hearing a song about garage saling on a CJRT folk show a few years back. It contained the lyrics:

I go saling, saling, garage saling
I keep my eyes on the side of the road
For the cardboard signs on the telephone poles
I go saling on.

I've bought knick knacks, bric a brac,
I even once bought a Pontiac
It didn't run but I painted it baby blue
(It looked so good on the lawn)

...I'm all out of room, all out of money,
I don't know how to break this to you Honey,
But I think you're gonna have to find a place of your own

Does any of this sound familiar? Who wrote it? Where can I find the lyrics?

Steve Key's web site says the song title is SALE-ING and it appears on his album "House Blend" (2002). Also, it is covered by Noah & Irene Carver on their CD, "You're Always There" (1999) and by Michelle & Scott Dalziel. (I have been unable to discover on what album; I suspect it is out of print.)

I am still searching for these lyrics. Could anyone help me out?

I recall it started with:

Some folks I know spend their Saturdays
Sitting at home watching football games
Others head over to Mom's for a home-cooked meal
I like to get out the classifieds
Gas up the car for a nice long ride
With a fist full of cash, ready to make some deals.

And I go sale-ing...

I'd like to sing this to my Aunt Vera who had a garage sale every Saturday from about 1981 till 7 years ago. She donated all the money to Casey House, a Toronto provider of health care for people living (and dying) with HIV/AIDS. My cousin Jerry, Vera's youngest son, died there on Christmas day, 1980. Vera's 100th birthday is just around the corner and I'd like to sing this song for her.
