Sally Wheatley

  • (Joe Wilson / Alex Glasgow)

    And it's oh dear me what am I gan to dae
    Sally stole away my heart completely
    And I'll never get it back
    For she gans wi' Mr Black
    And they say he's going to marry Sally Wheatley

    Now I'm most depressed and sad where I once was blithe and glad
    I could trip about the town both trim and neatly
    I was happy night and morn but from all such joys I'm shorn
    Since I fell so deep in love with Sally Wheatley

    Now I ne'er saw such a lass and I know she likes her glass
    She could toss a pot of whiskey over neatly
    Now it's right to take a drop when you know just when to stop
    That was just the very way with Sally Wheatley

    How I felt I didn't know the first time I Sally saw
    In a threesome reel she hopped about so neatly
    Well I might have had a chance if I'd asked her up to dance
    But I was over-shy to speak to Sally Wheatley

    Now he must have made it right when he took her home that night
    'Cause after work, dressed up, he goes to see her nightly
    There's great danger in delay or I wouldn't be sad today
    If I had my heart 'twould break for Sally Wheatley

    Not included:
    Now as often is the case you'll find others in your place
    If you didn't shove ahead and fettle reetly
    I had scarcely turned my back aye and there was Mr Black
    He was tiggin' round the room with Sally Wheatley

    (as sung by The Dubliners)
