Sally Free and Easy

(Cyril Tawney)

Sally, free and easy,
That should be her name,
Sally, free and easy,
That should be her name,
Took a sailors lovin',
For a nursery game.

Though the heart she gave me,
Was not made of stone,(2X)
It was sweet and hollw,
Like a honey-comb,
Think I'll wait till sunset,
See the ensign down,(2X)
Then I'll take the tide-way,
To be my buryin' ground,

Sally, free and easy,
That should be her name,(2X)
When I'd dead and buried,
Hope she dies of shame.
