SALLY (DON'T YOU GRIEVE) (Woody Guthrie) Woody Guthrie Also recorded by: Lonnie Donegan; Flatt & Scruggs; The Kingston Trio; Miki & Griff. I just got my army call And I run down to the army hall. Sally come a-runnin' like a cannonball And I told her not to grieve after me. CHORUS: It's-a when I'm gone, Sally, don't you grieve It's-a when I'm gone, Sally, don't you grieve It's-a when I'm gone, Sally, don't you grieve And I told her not to grieve after me. I'm a-gonna cross that ocean wide Army rifle by my side When Hitler's beat you can be my bride But I told her not to grieve after me. I'm a-gonna jump in a flyin' machine A-loaded full of this-a TNT Stop old Hitler what I mean And I told her not to grieve after me. A souvenir I'll send to you Send Hirohito and Hitler, too That's about all one feller can do But I told her not to grieve after me. Sally, get a job and save your pay Work your best for the U.S.A. Write me a letter 'bout ever' day And I told her not to grieve after me. If a blackout comes to the old home town Sally, won't you pull your curtains down If a shade goes up and a ship goes down I told her not to grieve after me.
