Annie, I was so blue when you met me
And youíve been like a good old friend when I was down
I even wrote you this song so you wonít forget me
Because weíre both overdue at blowiní this one horse town

But I gotta get myself on down to the depot
Or the trainís gonna leave without me now people
And Lord I cry every time that whistle blows
But I wrote this song for you
And Iíll tell you what Iíll do
Annie Iíll sing it for you everywhere my train goes

Now Annie thereís a mighty big world a waitiní
And it seems like the good old days are just cominí along
Everybody gets their share of loviní and hatiní
Every body gets done right and gets done wrong

 Annie, my words never could do justice
To the feeling that I get welliní up inside
You know the train of lifeís gonna try to bronc and bust us
But I hope that we can both hang on until the last damn ride
