A popular mountain dance tune recorded by many artists and still popular today in old time music sessions. Dance tune with floating verses: "Ever I get my new house done/Sail away, ladies, sail away/Give the old one to my son/Sail away...." "Don't you worry, don't you cry... You'll be angels by and by" Etc. "Chorus: "Don't'ye rock 'em, di-de-o (x3 or x4)". This started out as a fiddle tune, to which Uncle Dave added his own unique brand of nonsense--some original, some floating verses. -PJS
Ain't not use to sit and cry, sail away ladies sail away.
You'll be an angel by and by, sail away ladies sail away.


Don't you rock im daddy-o don't you rock him daddy-o
Don't you rock him daddy-o don't you rock him daddy-o

I've got a home in Tennessee,
sail away ladies sail away
that's the palce I wanna be
Sail away etc

If I ever get my new house done
sail away.....
I'll give the old one to my son
sail away.....

Come along boys and go with me
Sail away .....
We'll go down to Tennessee
Sail away

Ever I get my new house done,
Sail away ......
Love you pretty gals one by one
Sail away .....

Hush little baby, don't you cry
Sail away .....
You'll be an angel by and by
Sail away .....
