Lyrics

Sally was a legend
Sally was a legend in my heart
Sally was a legend
So we had to keep ourselves apart
Push the dream towards me
I can see a flower in the dark
I can understand you
I don't understand the sacred Heart

Sally was a legend
Sure as I can walk around this room
And the truth is evil
It's an evil truth to you-know-whom
I can point to Norway
I can point to Norway with my fist
Sally was a legend
Sure as there are veins beneath her wrist

Why?  Why?

Even with her eyes shut
She could see the faces on her lids
She could see my crying
That was long before I ever did
And it's been a lifetime
And with you I celebrate my life
Sally was a legend
Now she's at the table with a knife

Sally was a legend
Sally was a legend yeah
Sally was a legend
Sally was a legend yeah
