A woman of beauty
A woman of pain
In France or Jakarta
Her shadow's the same
You go home with Sally Ann
You go home with Sally Ann
You go home

A woman of kindness
With bracelets of jade
In China, in Japan
Choices are made
You go home with Sally Ann
You go home with Sally Ann
You go home

A woman of chances
With no family or friends
In Argentina
She knows only men
You go home with Sally Ann
You go home with Sally Ann
You go home

A woman of color
With debts to be paid
In Trenton or Detroit
She lives by the blade
You go home with Sally Ann
You go home with Sally Ann
You go home

awful 
Met her once and she acted more like the lord of the manor's daughter. Seriously though, she could have been having an off day.

Huh.  I uploaded this forever ago and got a "sorry".  Well what ever, looks like it's here now.  The vocals aren't all that, but they do fit the song.  And I love that fiddle!

Didn't she do this song with 10,000 Maniacs as well?
Raise high the roof beam carpenter's daughters!
This isn't her usual style, but her voice fits this piece rather nicely.
