Lonesome River Band – Sweet Sally Brown lyrics

Now every day ya get a little bit older
Hey sweet Sally
Every day get a little bit bolder
Oh sweet Sally.

Every night when I go to sleep
Hey Sweet Sally
The greenest blue eyes and lips so sweet
Oh Sweet Sally

Oh Sweet Sally, prettiest girl in town
Oh,Sweet Sally, I love Sweet Sally Brown.

I help carry her book to school
Hey Sweet Sally
I ain't too big but I ain't no fool
Oh Sweet Sally

I ain't big enough to go to school
Like Sally and brother
So give her a kiss at the school house door
Then go back home to Mother


Mom says I can't ask her to wed
That would be too mean
For you see I'm only five years old
And Sally's seventeen.

But age don't matter when love is true
The way that I love Sally
So I'll eat my food and grow up real big
And I'll be big like Sally.
