Sally Brown


As sung by Paul Clayton on Whaling And Sailing Songs

Oh Sally Brown she's a creole lady,
Way, hay, roll an' go.
Sally Brown's a gay old lady,
Spend my money on Sally Brown.

Sally Brown she has a daughter,
Way, hay, roll an' go.
Sent me sailin' 'cross the water.
Spend my money on Sally Brown.

Oh seven long years I courted Sally,
Way, hay, roll an' go.
Then she said she would not marry.
Spend my money on Sally Brown.

She wouldn't have no tarry sailor,
Way, hay, roll an' go.
Wouldn't have no greasy whaler.
Spend my money on Sally Brown.

Sally Brown I'm bound to leave you,
Way, hay, roll an' go.
Sally Brown I'll not deceive you.
Spend my money on Sally Brown.

Sally Brown she took a notion,
Way, hay, roll an' go.
Sent me sailin' 'cross the ocean.
Spend my money on Sally Brown.
