ANNIE, GENTLE ANNIE

Nathan Tinkham
Rhythm Range Music SOCAN

From my home on the prairies
Through the mountains to the sea
The road winds on and on
And hour by hour is taking me
Away from all this ice and snow
And February chill
I'm longing for the comfort
Of a touch that lingers still

Each morning there is coffee
So gracful and so wise
She moves around the kitchen
I follow with my eyes
And what I see is what I need
My soul is all afire
Annie, gentle Annie
You are the heart of my desire

Annie, gentle Annie you mean the world to me
And you are in my heart where you will always be

Annie, gentle Annie
We met when we were young
And she is like a part of me and
Her name rolls off my tougue
My feelings change like seasons
From winter into spring
I only know is I could never
Let her go again

Annie, gentle Annie you mean the world to me
And you are in my heart where you will always be

From my home on the prairies
Through the mountains to the sea
The road winds on and on
And hour by hour is taking me
Away from all this ice and snow
And February chill
I'm longing for the comfort
Of a touch that lingers still
