lyrics


Sally walked down the river
To my home, to my home
Standing on the porch she shivered
And she spoke, she spoke

She said daddy's been drinking again
And I'm scared, I'm scared
She said momma's been trying to calm him
And he's mad, lord he's mad

But don't you worry little angel girl
I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll save you girl

So turn your face away darling
The devil's doing his work
Turn your face away darling
This evil's giving birth

Sally walked down the river
To my home, to my home
Standing on the porch she quivered
And she said, she said

She said Tommys been out with his friends
And she's mad, lord she's mad
Our baby's done nothing but crying
He don't help, I need help

So don't you worry little angel girl
I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll save you girl

So turn your face away darling
The devil's doing his work
Turn your face away darling
this evil's giving birth

Well Sally's husband's up and leaving
Took the kid, took their son
Now Sally's been getting to drinking
And I'm scared, lord I'm scared

Now Sally drowned in the river
In the night, all alone
My baby's done gone now to heaven
So Lord I'm comin' home...

So turn your face away darling
The devil's doing his work
Turn your face away darling
this evil's giving birth
