    • Annie Doesn't Live Here Anymore
    • Here I stand in front of the old house with the broken down door
      A twinge of sadness fills the air as a long ago memory whispers "Annie doesn't live here anymore"
      I see the oak tree in the yard out back by the flower garden where the birds used to sing
      And try to remember how many times Annie and I rode that old tire swing
    • The tree is almost dead now and the tire lies on the ground
      The silence is deafening as I make my way around
      To the little creek we used to swim in and the crayfish abound
      Where days were hours and the sun never went down
    • The baby fawn we fed by dusk's closing light
      And the millions of stars we counted on a moonless night
      The time she ran away and I thought she would never come back home
      But she did and she promised me never again would she roam
      We climbed every rock and hill until winter's fall
      But in a faraway land things were amiss and I answered my country's call
    • Now after years of Hell I stand again under the old oak tree
      And think once again of Annie and me
      As I walk slowly away it all seems so sad
      For you see, Annie has died, she was the love I never had
