Words & Music: Jake Thackray Click here to download guitar tab Salvation Army girl, She plays the bugle in the Sunday street-corner band. Bright and early girl, With her shiny face and her bony hands. But although her nose is cold, Behind her spectacles her eyes are gold. And she's whispered to me that she might Be all things bright and beautiful tonight. Salvation Army girl, Sells papers in the Saturday boozers. Do-gooding Judy, With her thick woolly stockings and her squeaky shoes And her War Cries and her uniform. Beneath her battle-dress her skin is warm And her arms are white, And she wants me for a sunbeam tonight. Salvation Army girl Cutting bread and butter up the old men's shelter. My missionary missus. It's hard to believe that her mouth could melt; But it does, and generously. Her small white teeth can champ so ardently. So lead me kindly light, And onward Christian soldiers tonight. Sally Army girl, My little hallelujah lady. Don't go away . . .
