When Annie Took Me Home

	  		
Intro: G 

verse 1 
G               Am7 
 Late at night, somewhat tight, 
D7              G              G G/F# 
 Guardian angels put to flight. 
Em                    Am 
 Freddie's doused the neon light 
D7                      G 
 That promised while it shone. 

verse 2 
G            Am7 
 Time to go, time to blow, 
D7                  G               G G/F# 
 They don't push me 'cause they know. 
Em               Am 
 I'm still in my long ago, 
D7                  G 
 When Annie took me home. 

Refrain 
Em            Bm 
  There was I,  wondering why, 
Em                  D 
  Annie'd choose to ask me over. 
Em            Bm 
  But she did,  sure she did, 
A                 D            D/C   D/B   D/A 
 She called me her Irish rover. 

verse 3 
G            Am7 
 Sat me there in her chair, 
D7               G               G G/F# 
 Ran her fingers through my hair. 
Em               Am 
 Talk of heaven, I've been there 
     D7            G 
When Annie took me home. 

Instrumental 
G            Am7 
D7        G   G G/F# 
Em        Am 
D       G 

verse 4 
G             Am7 
 Rafters rung, songs were sung, like 
D7               G             G G/F# 
 "Spanish Is the Loving Tongue". 
Em              Am 
  Ribbons on my life were hung, 
     D7            G 
When Annie took me home. 

Refrain 
Em               Bm 
  There was wine,  there was time. 
Em             D 
 All the while guitars were playing. 
Em            Bm 
  Then the day  came my way, 
 A                 D               D/C   D/B   D/A 
  When she told me I'd be staying. 

Verse 5 
G              Am7 
 Love can grow, love can go, 
D7                G 
 Did she love me? I don't know. 
Em                Am 
 Though she often told me so, 
     D7           G 
I've never really known. 

Verse 6 
G            Am7 
 Was I blind? I don't mind. 
D7                    G             G G/F# 
  I think life's been more than kind. 
Em                   Am 
Thanks to life, there was the time 
    D7             G 
When Annie took me home. 

Outro 
G G/F#  Em                    Am 
        Thanks to life, there was the time 
    D7             G 
When Annie took me home.
