DEAR ANN

 

 

IíM AT THE RAILROAD STATION AND MY TRAIN IS PULLING IN

ANN, REALLY, I DONíT HAVE A LOT OF TIME

SO IíLL JUST TELL YOU HOW I FEEL AND HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND

IíLL TRY TO SAY IT ALL WITH THESE FEW LINES

 

ĎCAUSE ANN I DIDNíT WANT TO LEAVE YOU CRYING

SO I SLIPPED OUT IN THE NIGHT

I JUST COULDNíT THINK OF A WAY TO TELL YOU

THE THRILL HAD GONE FROM OUR LIVES

NOW PLEASE DONíT THINK THAT, IíM NOT GRATEFUL

FOR ALL THOSE THINGS YOUíVE DONE

BUT IíM JUST ME, AND I NEED TO BE FREE

SO LOOK OUT WORLD, HERE I COME

 

Chorus

DEAR ANN, WILL YOU MISS YOUR WATER

NOW THE WELLíS RUN DRY

IN TIME, YOU WILL FIND ANOTHER

THEREíS NO NEED TO CRY

I HEAR, THAT CONDUCTOR CALLING

I MUST BE ON BY WAY

ANN, PLEASE DONíT THINK THAT IíM NOT GRATEFUL

BECAUSE I DID NOT STAY

 

(Key change)

NOW EVERY FLOWER NEEDS THE SUNSHINE

IF ITíS EVER GONNAí GROW

AND YOU WERE THERE TO GIVE ME SUNSHINE THAT I NEEDED SO

 

 

 

 

 

NOW ITíS A SHAME, BUT WINTER CAME

SO TRY AND UNDERSTAND

THAT YOU WERE ALL THAT I COULD ASK FOR

BUT IíM A RAMBLING MAN

 

REPEAT CHORUS THREE TIMES
