MY SWEET ANNETTE

Am   C    G    D

Am                           C
Me and my Annette, we was as fond as we could be
G                        D
We was set to marry in October 33
  Am                                C
I set my sights on courtin' her, as fine as she could be
  G                      D
I never even noticed her best friend Marilee
       Am                        C
Took a job at the saw mill and I bought my girl a ring
      G                        D
Had a pre-wedding party, close friends and family
Am                          C
Everything was fine, eatin' homemade ice cream
  G                             D
I swear I never noticed maid of honor, Marilee
Am               C                        G  D
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the al-tar.
Am               C                        G  D
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the al-tar.

Am                            C
Marilee was taken ill, it was several miles from home
     G                            D
Back then it wasn't fittin' for a girl to leave alone
Am                             C
Sweet Annette, she asked me to walk her to the door
   G                         D
As innocent as children back before the war
Am               C                        G  D
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the al-tar.
Am               C                        G  D
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the al-tar.

Am                  C
Lord have mercy for what we done
G                        D
Lord have mercy when two people get alone
Am                            C
Neither one of us had done anything like that you see
G                         Em
By the next sunset, I had eloped with Marilee,
G                         Em
By the next sunset, I had eloped with Marilee,
G                         Em
By the next sunset, I had eloped with Marilee,

Am   C    G    D
Am   C    G    D
Am   C    G    D
Am   C    G    D

Am               C                        G
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the al-tar.
