Played by Jerry Garcia with the Sleepy Hollow Hog Stompers in June 1962. Often played as an instrumental, but there are lyrics for the tune and the Sleepy Hollow Hog Stompers sang a couple of verses:
Little piece of pie, little piece of puddin'Other verses/variants - not sung by the Sleepy Hollow Hog Stompers - include:
I'm goin' down the road to see Sally Goodin
Goin' down the road, the road's a little muddy
So durn drunk I can't stand steady
Had a piece of pie an' I had a piece of puddin'
An' I give it all away just to see my Sally Goodin
Well, I looked down the road an' I see my Sally comin'
An' I thought to my soul that I'd kill myself a-runnin'
Love a 'tater pie an' I love an apple puddin
An' I love a little gal that they call Sally Goodin
An' I dropped the 'tater pie an' I left the appie puddin'
But I went across the mountain to see my Sally Goodin
Sally is my dooxy an' Sally is my daisy
When Sally says she hates me I think I'm goin crazy
Little dog'll bark an' the big dog'll bite you
Little gal'll court you an' big gal'll fight you
Rainin' an' a-pourin' an' the creek's runnin' muddy
An' I'm so dam' drunk I can't stand steady
I'm goin up the mountain an' marry little Sally
Raise corn on the hillside an' the devil in the valley
