Well, she played around town till she opened the show
For a high rollin' singer up from Tupelo
He saw her in the lights and he gave her a hand
Next thing Sally knew she was one of the band

She said don't give me nothin' that I can't use
I got the rhythm and I don't need the blues
I don't wanna ride no shootin' star
Just wanna play on the rhythm guitar

She was the sweetest thing that he ever had seen
And he's had quite a few of them backstage queens
She was the prettiest thing that he ever had heard
Playin' rhythm guitar and singin' the third

She said don't give me nothin' that I can't use
I got the rhythm and I don't need the blues
I don't wanna ride no shootin' star
Just wanna play on the rhythm guitar

Well, Sally keeps her feet planted on the ground
She don't lose her head when the sun goes down
Everybody's out looking for romance
Sally just wants to get the people to dance

She said don't give me nothin' that I can't use
I got the rhythm and I don't need the blues
I don't wanna ride no shootin' star
Just wanna play on the rhythm guitar

She said don't give me nothin' that I can't use
I got the rhythm and I don't need the blues
I don't wanna ride no shootin' star
Just wanna play on the rhythm guitar
