- Ballad of Sally Rose -
by Emmylou Harris, from her album 'The Ballad of Sally Rose' (1985)
Written by Emmylou Harris and Paul Kennerley


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

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

   Eb           Bb         F            Bb
No rings on her fingers no bells on her toes
     Eb              Bb
With bugs on her headlights
    C7          F
And runs in her hose
            Eb            F         Bb          Eb
Through the valley of the shadow of Roosevelt's nose
   Bb                  F        Bb
Adios South Dakota, adios Sally Rose

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

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

  Eb           Bb         F            Bb
No rings on her fingers no bells on her toes
     Eb              Bb
With bugs on her headlights
    C7          F
And runs in her hose
            Eb            F         Bb          Eb
Through the valley of the shadow of Roosevelt's nose
   Bb                  F        Bb
Adios South Dakota, adios Sally Rose
