ANNE OF A THOUSAND DAYS Leroy Van Dyke - 1965 SPOKEN: Anne, for a thousand days I've loved you For a thousand nights I thought you were mine It's hard to realise things could be the way they seem I'll never get over the shock it's been to me To find out after all this time Those thousand days have been a horrible dream SUNG: Anne of a thousand days, I've loved you That was my only sin The hurt's so deep and though you weep How can I take you back again SPOKEN: I waited late in life to marry you, Anne You were the only girl I ever wanted The only girl I ever cared the least bit about When I see the friends who warned me I didn't know what I was gettin' into How in the world am I gonna face them The moment that they find out When we got married it took all my savin's To buy you the fine house you wanted And that brand new car I gave you nearly all of ev'ry paycheck And I just kept enough for cigarettes I set up charge accounts in all the department stores And you run 'em up so high How do I clear away all those debts SUNG: Anne of a thousand days, I've loved you That was my only sin The hurt's so deep and though you weep How can I take you back again SPOKEN: Lately you've been goin' out alone You said you were just playin' bridge with the girls But there's somethin' goin' on behind my back Night after night I sit by myself by myself Watchin' TV an' hope all the things I'm hearin' Just couldn't possibly be a fact Tonight I couldn't stand it any longer I followed you, saw you turn into the park and run into his arms And as he kissed you, I watched his fingers at the back of your head I tried to look away, but somehow I just stood there Dumbfounded and so sick inside I wished that I was dead SUNG: Anne of a thousand days, I've loved you That was my only sin The hurt's so deep and though you weep How can I take you back again SPOKEN: We've come to the end of the line, Anne And now you're pleadin' and screamin' "What's gonna happen to me?" Well, all I can do before I leave and take it on the lam Is to quote you those immortal words That've been said many times before "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!" Goodby, Anne SUNG: Anne of a thousand days, I've loved you That was my only sin The hurt's so deep and though you weep I cannot take you back again (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2009)
