Lyrics

I'm skipping stones
at the edge of the dock
A fog came rolling in,
quiet like a hawk
The river's so smooth,
it could shatter with a rock
It felt like I was walking on water

Then the doctor's daughter
came and dove right in
Lord Almighty,
She's in nothing but skin
I could turn my head
but she may never come again
She's filling the sky
with her laughter


(Chorus)
Annalee
Annalee
You're shaking the timbers
You're rattling the leaves
theres a full moon rising
in front of me
come and stake your claim in my memory

Annalee
Annalee
Did the good Lord send you
down to deliver me
Come lay your head in a bed of leaves
I am here, I am yours for the taking

Well, around about midnight
on a riverboat ride
I'm a mandolin jukebox
and Annie's at my side
One bottle empty,
one waiting like a bride
She's dancing like light on the water

We've got six weeks till college
Six weeks and then we're gone
Oh, life is like a river
And the river's rolling on
So come on, Annie
you taste like brandy
will you kiss me awake come morning?

I can't promise a lifetime of tomorrows
What tomorrow brings God only knows
I know this about tomorrow
We're filling it with sorrow
if we let tonight just end
