SALLY

SALLY LIVED IN THE FOOTHILLS

SOMEWHERE IN TENNESSEE

SHE WAS 5 FT 2, WITH EYES OF BLUE, PRETTY AS COULD BE

HER HEART BELONGED TO DALLAS, WHO LIVED IN CAROLINE

AN OLD FRIEND OF HER DADDY’S

HE’D DROP BY,  FROM TIME TO TIME

 

ONE DAY WHEN DALLAS CAME AROUND, HER DADDY WAS NOT HOME

DALLAS TOLD HIS LIES TO SALLY, THEN LEFT HER ALL ALONE

HOW CAN SHE EVER TELL HER DAD A BABY WILL BE DUE?

BUT, SHE COULDN’T WAIT TO TELL DALLAS, OF THEIR GOOD NEWS

 
SALLY WENT TO CAROLINE TO FIND THE MAN OF HER DREAMS

WHEN SHE ARRIVED SHE LOOKED FOR HIM, HOUR’S IT SEEMED

THEN A MAN AT THE TRAIN STATION, SAID DALLAS HAD MOVED AWAY

SALLY JUST STOOD THER IN THE POURING RAIN, NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO, OR SAY

 

THE PRICE SHE’D PAY FOR LOVING HIM WAS JUST TOO MUCH TO PAY

SOME SAY, SALLY SAW THE CAR

BUT DIDN’T TRY TO GET OUT OF THE WAY

DALLAS TOOK MORE THAN A COUNTRY GIRLS HEART

WHEN HE DECIDED TO RUN AWAY

HE TOOK THE LIFE OF SALLY

AND THEIR UNBORN CHILD THAT DAY

 

THE COUNTRY GIRL FROM TENNESSEE

LOVED HER MAN FROM CAROLINE

SHE GAVE HIM ALL SHE HAD TO GIVE

THEN PUT HER LIFE ON THE LINE

HE DIDN’T CARE HOW HER WORLD WOULD CHANGE

WHEN HE STOLE HER LOVE AWAY, AND

HE’LL NEVER KNOW TWO LIVES WERE LOST

INSTEAD OF ONE TODAY
