lyrics

 
The orchard was full of bees
Down in the garden 
She was on her knees
By some great fortune
I saw her there
Overalls and braided hair
She was looking over my way
We both smiled and she did say
 
She said where did you come from
Won’t you tell me true?
 
I said I come from a little old town
Where in the hollows there’s not a sound
Where the water runs good and clean
I can show you if you know what I mean
 
I said where did you come from
Won’t you tell me true?
 
I said I come from big city lights
Where the cars pass by my window at night
And on the steps all along my street
All the folks sit in the summer heat
 
We made eyes and she said 
My name is Annabelle
I said that’s swell
You got a mighty fine garden
For a city girl
 
The next day all the flowers
That were in bloom
They were in my room
I said I’ll take you to the city
And I’ll take you to the river
Yeah I’ll take you to the city
And I’ll take you to the river
 
I’ll take you to the city
And I’ll take you to the river
