Sarah the Whale (Dixie)
Song begins at 1:44
Words: traditional. Melody: "Dixie".
Rise Up Singing chapter: Play, p.170 under "A Horse Named Bill"
C - / F FG7 / C - / G7 C
In Frisco bay there lives a whale
And she eats pork chops by the pail
By the hatbox, by the pillbox
By the hogshead and schooner
Her name is Sarah and she's a peach
[alt: Her name is Lena and she's a peach]
But don't leave food within her reach
Or babies, or nursemaids / airedales
Or chocolate ice cream sodas
She loves to laugh and...
She knows no games so...
I went up in...
The balloon turned up with...
Oh, what can you do in a case like that?...
