DADGBE Lyr Req: Goodbye Liza Jane (19) ADD Version: Goodbye Liza Jane 05 May 07

I always sang the 'Scarlet town is burning down' version for kids with a series of verses based on color. I would ask for the name of a color and make up a verse about it. It was a great hit with school kids who would always try to stump me.


Liza Jane in a dress of red,
Good bye, good bye,
hem stitched 'round with golden thread,
Good bye Liza Jane

Liza Jane in a dress of green,
Prettiest girl I've ever seen.

Liza Jane in a dress of blue,
Stole my heart and my best friend, too.

Liza jane in a dress of brown,
Prettiest girl in the whole darned town.

Liza Jane in a dress of purple,
Lips as sweet as maple surple.

For 'orange' I sang,
Orange Liza Jane won't wear,
Now I've made a rhyme, so there!

You get the idea. It's a great kids song.
