Sneaking Sally Through The Alley  Robert Palmer

--------------------------------------



[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7] Ooh, [C7]ooh, [A7]ooh.
[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7] Ooh, [C7]ooh, [A7]ooh.
Verse 1:

[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7]   [C7] Tryin' to keep her outta [A7]sight.
[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7]   [C7] When up popped the [A7]wife.

I said, "[A7]I can't find nothing wrong,
With being friends 'cos sometimes;
[D7]   [C7] She lets me use her car." [A7]
She said; "If [A7]you can't find,
Nothing wrong in your mind,
You'd better;
[D7]   [C7] Find something [A7]wrong with hers.

Bridge 1:

So [D7]I began to [G7]try to ex-[D7]plain,
That it [C7]just wasn't, just wasn't,
[G7] Just wasn't what she [D7]thought.

Now [A7]I'd better find something,
To do with my time;
Fact [D7]is; [C7]
I've just been [A7]caught.

Chorus 2:

[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7] Ooh, [C7]ooh, [A7]ooh.
[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7] Ooh, [C7]ooh, [A7]ooh.

Solo:

A7, D7 C7 A7 (x8)

Verse 2:

[A7] Sneaking through the alley with Sally;
[D7]   [C7] Tryin' to get away [A7]clean.
[A7] Sneaking through the alley with Sally;
[D7]   [C7] When up popped the [A7]queen.

[A7] I talk double talk,
Anything's trouble talk,
Catching myself in [D7]lies[C7].   [A7]
[A7] Mama, just look at me as if I was crazy;
[D7]   [C7] She didn't even bat an [A7]eye-lid.

Bridge 2:

So [D7]I began to [G7]try to ex-[D7]plain,
That it [C7]just wasn't, just wasn't,
[G7] Just wasn't what she [D7]thought.

Now [A7]I'd better find something,
To do with my time;
Fact [D7]is; [C7]
I've just been [A7]caught, just been caught.

Chorus 3:

[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7] Ooh, [C7]ooh, [A7]ooh.
[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7] Ooh, [C7]ooh, [A7]ooh.

Verse 3:

[A7] Sneaking through the alley with Sally;
[D7]   [C7] Tryin' to get away [A7]clean.
[A7] Sneaking through the alley with Sally;
[D7]   [C7] When up popped the [A7]queen.

[A7] I talk double talk,
Anything's trouble talk,
Catching myself in [D7]lies[C7].   [A7]
[A7] Mama, just look at me as if I was crazy;
[D7]   [C7] She didn't even bat an [A7]eye-lid.

Coda:

[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7] Ooh, [C7]ooh, [A7]ooh.
[A7] Sneaking sally through the alley,
[D7] Ooh, [C7]ooh, [A7]ooh.
