Sally Don't You Grieve

This song is by Malvina Reynolds.

When I'm gone, Sally, don't you grieve,
When I'm gone, Sally, don't you grieve,
When I'm gone, Sally, don't you grieve,
And I told her not to grieve after me.

Restless foot and a roving mind,
I'm gonna leave this town behind,
Leave my honey so sweet and kind,
And I told her not to grieve after me.

I am one of them rambling men,
Trav'ling since I don't know when,
Here I come and then gone again,
And I told her not to grieve after me.

Big old road goes round the bend,
There's a pot of gold at the other end,
Sally says that I'll never mend,
And I told her not to grieve after me.

I've been roaming everywhere
Never been satisfied anywhere;
I dream of Sally so sweet and fair,
And I told her not to grieve after me.

Goodbye, Sally, my heart's delight,
I will come back when the moon is bright,
If you're gone, it will serve me right,
And I told her not to grieve after me.
