lyrics

Among the braid so tall
Underneath the forget-me-alls
Annie breaks with arms held wide
The twisted smile lullaby

And like the fading oak
I will, I will truth be told
Sell the best, this story's old
Annie's gone away, I'm told

Hold my hand, no need to eye
The shackled heartstring lullaby
Upon the asphalt Annie lies
Whispered nothings upon the flies

And like the fading oak
I will, I will truth be told
Sell the best, this story's old
Annie's gone away, I'm told

Have you heard the news?
Annie's gone to sing the blues
Old Towne Theatre booked her through
Next year's party afternoon

I'll miss her and you will too
Lullabies and mel-o-toons
Annie knows the songs will grow
Into headdress mouth and throat

And like the fading oak
I will, I will truth be told
Sell the best, this story's old
Annie's gone away, I'm told
