“Sally Went to Preachin'”


'Sally went to preachin', she shouted and she squalled, She got so full religion she tore her stocking heel." "An a git a long home, nega, nega (x3), I'm bound for Shakletown." "Somebody stole my ol' coon dog...." "I'm gonna get some bricks...."


This reminds me a lot of "Cindy," but it's hard to tell if they are related based on the Brown text. - RBW
