Jo Taylor Lyr Req: Famous Aviators (27) Lyr Add: SALLY GREEN 03 Nov 00


I was just listening to a 1981 recording of the Bartholomew Jug Band doing this:

SALLY GREEN

Your mama stands by the window
She wants to know where you've been
Just tell her I'm your aviator
And kiss me goodnight Sally Green


Ch:Kiss me goodnight Sally Green
I'll leave you in my two-wheeled machine
Kiss me goodnight Sally Green
Till tomorrow you'll be in my dreams...


Just smile and tell me you love me
As I kiss you goodbye
I'll take your photograph with me
As I am flying so high


Ch.
Rpt first verse.

BJB were a mess of people and instruments who had a wonderful time playing old. new, silly and serious songs. Sorry, just having a touch of nostalgia (yes, I was one of them...) I don't know if the song's well known or not - never heard anyone else doing it. I loved it. The guitarist (my SO) wore a leather flying helmet, goggles and a wired silk scarf and we all made relevant vrooming noises the second time through. If you'd like it or don't know it I can send a recording or attempt an ABC.
