This is one of those tunes that seems to have endless versions - probably because it does not have much of a melody to latch on to. Mostly done as an instrumental but does have words. This version has more tune than most and is a little easier to remember.
Had a piece of pie an' I had a piece of puddin',
An' I give it all away just to see my Sally Goodin.
Had a piece of pie an' I had a piece of puddin',
An' I give it all away just to see my Sally Goodin.
Well, I looked down the road an' I see my Sally comin',
An' I thought to my soul that I'd kill myself a-runnin'.
Well, I looked down tlle road an' I see my Sally comin',
An' I thought to my soul that I'd kill myself a-runnin'.
Love a 'tater pie an' I love an apple puddin ,
An' I love a little gal that they call Sally Goodin. (repeat 2 lines)
An' I dropped the 'tater pie an' I left the appie puddin',
But I went across the mountain to see my Sally Goodin. (repeat 2 lines)
