THE BALLAD OF SAMMY'S BAR
(from the cassette Sally Free And Easy Cyril Tawney)


I went down to Sammy's Bar, hey the last boat's a'leaving.
By the shore at Pieta, call away the dzisou.

And my real love she was there, hey the last boat's a'leaving.
There was sand all in her hair, call away the dzisou.

How did sand get in your hair? Hey the last boat's a'leaving.
Darling Johnny put it there, call away the dzisou.

Been with Johnny all the day, hey the last boat's a'leaving.
Out at Eyntefia bay, call away the dzisou.

He's a better man by far, hey the last boat's a'leaving.
'Cos he's got a Yankee car, call away the dzisou.

I went out from Sammy's bar, hey the last boat's a'leaving.
Had to hire a Yankee car, call away the dzisou.

Fourteen days I drank no wine, hey the last boat's a'leaving.
Saving for that love of mine, call away the dzisou.

Then one day in Poala Square, hey the last boat's a'leaving.
At a paper I did stare, call away the dzisou.

Johnny tried a hairpin bend, hey the last boat's a'leaving.
For my love it was the end, call away the dzisou.

Going back to Sammy's Bar, hey the last boat's a'leaving.
I don't need no Yankee car, call away the dzisou.
