Peggy Quotes

Undervalued as a songwriter - especially in the shadow of MacColl, Heading for Home is but one of scores of valuable songs that Seeger has written, many grafted onto or from the living tradition. Her themes are love and betrayal, human solitude and need for affection, as well as the broad sweeps of socialist, feminist values and ideas. I looked across the amber light of the stone, timber and whitewash Market House, heard the incessant, sleety rain on the roof and witnessed an audience enthralled, left to sing on their own and all heading for home with thoughts and emotions drawn from deep, deep wells. Great gig, Peggy! - Francis Devine, Irish Times

Peggy Quotes 2

With the singing voice of a 20-year old, the tone and temperament of a slightly acidic and world-wise 40-year old, and possessing the studied acumen of a 500-year old, the lady enjoyed a warm intimate gathering of friends and family upon the occasion of her 70th birthday at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, England.

Sally Goodin

SALLY GOODIN
Traditional N. American


Love a ‘tater pie, love a ‘tater pudding
Love a little gal and her name is Sally Goodin.

Looked down the road, saw my Sally comin’
Though to my soul that I’d kill myself a-runnin’

Little piece of pie, little piece of pudding
Give ‘em all away to my little Sally Goodin.

Sally is so fine, Sally is so pretty,
Sally is the gal ran away to the city.
