Sally Brown


O, Sally Brown she's a bright mulatto
   To me way, hey, roll and go
She drinks rum and chews tobacco
   Gonna spent my money on Sally Brown

O, Sally Brown's a Creole lady
She's the mother of a yellow baby

Seven long years I courted Sally
Sweetest girl in all the valley

She wouldn't have no tarry sailor
Wouldn't have no greasy whaler

So I courted Sal, her only daughter
For her I sail upon the water

O, Sally Brown, of New York City
O, Sally Brown you're very pretty
