AnnaLee Song Lyrics


Skipping stones at the edge of the dock
The fog comes rolling in quiet like a hawk
The river so smooth it could shatter with a rock
It felt like I was walking on water
Then the doctors daughter came and dove right in
Lord Almighty she’s nothing but skin
I could turn my head, but she may never come again
She’s filling the sky with her laughter
[Chorus]
Anna Lee, Anna Lee
You’re shaking the timbers, your rattling the leaves
There’s a full moon rising in front of me
Come on stake your claim in my memory
Anna Lee, Anna Lee
Did the good Lord send you down to deliver me?
Come stake your claim in my memory
I’m here and I’m yours for the taking
Well along around midnight on a river boat ride
I’m a mandolin jukebox and Annie at my side
One bottle empty, one waiting like a bride
She’s dancing like light on the water
We’ve got six weeks ‘til college, six weeks until we’re gone
Oh life is like a river and the river flowing on
Come on Annie, your lips are like brandy (or you taste like brandy)
Will you kiss me awake come morning?
[Chorus]
Anna Lee, Anna Lee
You’re shaking the timbers, your rattling the leaves
There’s a full moon rising in front of me
Come on stake your claim in my memory
Anna Lee, Anna Lee
Did the good Lord send you down to deliver me?
Come lay your head in a bed of leaves
I’m here and I’m yours for the taking.
[Bridge]
I can’t promise a life time of tomorrows
What tomorrow brings God only knows
I know this about tomorrow
They’re filling it with sorrow
If we let tonight just go
Anna Lee, Anna Lee
You’re shaking the timbers, your rattling the leaves
There’s a full moon rising in front of me
Come on stake your claim in my memory
Anna Lee, Anna Lee
Did the good Lord send you down to deliver me?
Come lay your head in a bed of leaves
I’m here and I’m yours for the taking.
Anna Lee, Anna Lee, Anna Lee, Anna Lee, Anna Lee
