Long Tall Sally Has Long Gone
Lyrics

Well I never had much luck up in Denver
Never ever till I met Sally from San Antone
The lady took me by surprise when she past by those other guys
And we left that city calling it our own.

Well she took me around the world by the time we hit Nebraska
Flew me to the moon from Omaha
Then down by the mighty Mississippi I don't know what she slipped me
But when I woke long tall Sally had long gone.

Well Sally, Sally, Sally where you going
Sally, Sally, Sally what you do
Before the bugel blows revelle you'll be sneaking down some alley
Singing, "That'll be the day when I catch on up to you"!

So, I headed down to Texas, thinking that's where Sally go
Heard she tore up Dallas like a tornado.
She hit Houston like a hurricane, the woman's lightning the woman's rain
Steal your money and your car then she'll drive you insane.

Well Sally, Sally, Sally where you going
Sally, Sally, Sally what you do
Before the bugel blows revelle you'll be sneaking down some alley
Singing, "That'll be the day when I catch on up to you"!

Well I finally read about Sal down in Amarillo
Heard she met her fate on the wrong side of a pillow
No one knows where Sal went wrong, Papers say she never belonged
And all I know is long tall Sally has long gone.
All I know long tall Sally has long gone.
All I know long tall Sally has long gone. Bye bye Sally!
