The classic Andy Pratt Song re recorded 41 years later!

lyrics

We ran through the hills and forests
As two under a spell
He was a city boy, Floyd the outlaw
But I thought I knew him well

Long after that great summer
When I first came into my fame
And the avenger from Oklahoma
Was added to my name
The avenger I became

Well, they call me Avenging Annie
I'm avenger of womanhood
I spend my whole life telling lies
Lead you on and mess you over good

I take all you spoiled young hippies
Running around, playing games
Mess around in your bed
I blow your head
I put you through a change

What you've done to others
I do unto you

And then I met my
Sensitive outlaw
He was the best thing
I had ever seen

I wanna be his wife
and give him my life
I was so blind
I could never have seen, no

So I joined up with my outlaw
And headed for California

He treat me worse than I ever imagine
He even say he don't want me around
Kept it up so long I couldn't be strong
He run me right into the ground

After five long years
He picked me up and
Then he slapped me down

Well I told my friends about him
They all were on my side
When I could see through the haze
He looked so crazy
I put my head right down and I cried

For my poor lover
I cried like a mother
For my poor lover

Well, I felt so sad about it
But I knew I couldn't do him no good
He was so far gone
Well standing on the lawn
I left him, I knew I should
I knew I couldn't do him no good

And now I live out on a mountain top
And I'm almost thirty-five
And I found my peace
And I found my release
And I'm happy just to be alive

And I might go back to my Floyd
If I think it's the thing to do
He gave up murder and theft right after I left
And you know I still love him too

Just like your woman loves you
Just like your woman loves you
Just like your woman loves you
Just like your woman loves you...

Well, they call me avenging Annie
I'm the avenger of womanhood
I spend my whole life telling lies
Lead you on and mess you over, yeah

They call me avenging Annie
I'm the avenger of womanhood
I spend my whole life telling lies
Lead you on and mess you over, yeah
