Kingston Trio – Sally, Don't You Grieve lyrics

Woody Guthrie

Sally, Sally, Sally, don't you grieve. (Well-a, well now) (Repeat twice)
And I told her not to grieve after me.

Well, it's when I'm gone, Sally, don't you grieve. (Repeat twice)
And I told her not to grieve after me.

Well, I'm in love with Sally and she use to love me but she's gotten kind of busy just recently.
Well, I'm feelin' so bad I can't stand it anymore. I'm gonna get my hat and then I'm gonna hit the door.

Well, it's when I'm gone, Sally, don't you grieve. (Repeat twice)
And I told her not to grive after me.

Well, I'm a-going down the road with my troubles on my mind. I love that woman but I wasn't born blind.
She tried to make me stay but I had to tell her "No!" She should've quit a-foolin' with me long time ago.

Well, it's bye, bye, baby, goodbye, goodbye. (Repeat twice)
And I told her not to grieve after me.

Sally said she was sorry. I even think she cried. When she left, it kinda hurt my pride.
To think that I could never teach her what true loves mean, I guess she couldn't help it 'cause she's only thirteen.

Well, it's when I'm gone, Sally, don't you grieve. (Repeat twice)
And I told her not to grive after me. (Repeat)
