The Hill Billies (aka Al Hopkins and His Buckle Busters) recorded Sally Ann at their first-ever recording date, a January 1925 session for the OKeh label. They would re-record the the following year for release on Brunswick and Vocalion.

Though this performance is in C major, Sally Ann is often played in other keys, more commonly G and D. This particular interpretation bears resemblance to the celebrated vulgar ditty Great Big Taters, albeit with fairly wholesome lyric content.
