Intro: C-Am-D-G

 

Now I'm (G)most depressed and sad

Where I (C)once was blithe and (G)glad

I could (C)trip about the (G)town both trim and (D)neatly

I was (G)happy (G*)night and (G)morn'

But from (C)all such joys I'm (G)shorn

Since I (C)fell so deep in (Am)love with Sally (D)Wheat(G)ley

 

Chorus:

And it's (C)Oh, (Em)dear (D)me, what am (G)I gonna dee

Sally stole away me heart com(D)pletely

And I'll (G)never get it back, for she (C)gans with mister (G)Black

And they (C)say he's going to (Am)marry Sally (D)Wheat(G)ley

 

Now I (G)never saw such a lass

And I (C)know she likes her (G)glass

She could (C)toss a pot of (G)whiskey over (D)neatly

Now it's (G)right to (G*)take a (G)drop

When you (C)know just when to (G)stop

That was (C)just the very (Am)way with Sally (D)Wheat(G)ley

 

Repeat Chorus

 

How I (G)felt I didn't know

The (C)first time I Sally (G)saw

In a (C)threesome reel she (G)hopped about so (D)neatly

Well I (G)might have (G*)had a (G)chance

If I (C)asked her up to (G)dance

But I (C)was over shy to (Am)speak to Sally (D)Wheatl(G)ey

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Now he (G)must have made it right

When he (C)took her home that (G)night

'Cause (C)after work, dressed up, he (G)goes to see her (D)nightly

There's great (G)danger (G*)in de(G)lay

Or I (C)wouldn't be sad to(G)day

If I (C)had me heart to (Am)break for Sally (D)Wheat(G)ley

 

Repeat Chorus twice

...And they (C)say he's going to (Am)marry Sally (D)Wheat(G)ley
