Schwa Lyrics

Sally Anne

Lyricist: Traditional
Vocalist: Cliff Starbuck
With love in his heart and flowers in his hand, 
Johnny proposed to Sally Anne.
And Sally shivered as she said, 
I’ll love you till the day I’m dead.

Johnny got married in his one good suit,
But the ride from the church bore strange fruit.
Down by the road, you can hear her cry.
That they hung from a tree, she watched him die.


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

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


Sail away ladies, sail away.
Sail away ladies, sail away.
Doc and Cellos cross the floor.
Ghostly love, a dance once more.
When the wedding bells ring in that town,
A ghostly virgin strolls the ground.
