Ballad Of Sally Rose
Recorded by Emmylou Harris
Written by Paul Kennerley and Emmylou Harris

Her momma picked him up in south Minnesota
D7 G
He promised her the world but they never got that far
For he was last seen in that '59 DeSota
D7 G
When Sally was born in the black hills of Dakota

She was washed in the blood of the dying Sioux nation
D7 G
Raised with a proud but a wandering heart
And she knew that her roots were in the old reservation
D7 G
But she had stars in her eyes and greater expectations

C G D7 G
No rings on her fingers no bells on her toes
C G A7 D7
With bugs on her headlights and runs in her hose
C D7 G C
Through the valley of the shadow of Roosevelt's nose
G D7 G
Adios South Dakota adios Sally Rose

D7 G
They've got a national monument carved out of stone
D7 G
On the side of a mountain where her forefathers roamed
Playin' cowboys and Indians right under the nose
D7 G
Of Theodore Roosevelt and the sweet Sally Rose

So she left Rapid City in the blue moonlight hour
D7 G
With her eye on the highway and her foot on the floor
And turnin' the dial she was pulled by the power
D7 G
Of the word coming out of that broadcasting tower

repeat #3
