The Ballad of Sally Ann
Written by Alice Randall, Harry Stinson & Mark O'Connor



Chords


Song

1.

With love in his heart and flowers in hand,
Johnny proposed to Sally Ann,
Sally shivered as she said,
I’ll love you ‘til the day I’m dead.

2.

Johnny got married in his one good suit,
But the ride from the church it bore strange fruit,
Down the road, you could hear her cry,
As he hung from a tree, she watched him die.

chorus:

Who’s gonna dance with Sally Ann?
Who’s gonna hold her tremblin’ hand?
When the fiddler takes the stand,
Who’s gonna dance with Sally Ann?

3.

Sally attends every wedding ‘round here,
Looking for her Johnny dear,
You can feel them in the room,
If the fiddler plays that tune.

chorus:

bridge:

- - - - , Sail away ladies, sail away. (x2)

modulation up one tone - instrumental solo:

4.

Darkened shadows cross the floor,
As ghostly lovers dance once more,
When wedding bells ring in that town,
A ghostly virgin strolls the around.

chorus:
