Me and my Annette, we was as fond as we could be
We were set to marry in October 33
I set my sights to courtin' her, as fine as she could be
I never ever noticed her best friend Marilee

Took a job at the saw mill and I bought my girl a ring
Had a pre-wedding party, close friends and family
Everything was fine, eatin' homemade ice cream
I swear I never noticed maid of honor, Marilee

And my sweet Annette was left standing at the alter
My sweet Annette was left standing at the alter

Marilee was taken ill, it was several miles from home
Back then it wasn't fittin' for a girl to leave alone
Sweet Annette, she asked me to walk her to the door
As innocent as children back before the war

And my sweet Annette was left standing at the alter
My sweet Annette was left standing at the alter

Lord have mercy for what we done
Lord have mercy when to people get alone
Neither one of us had done anything like that you see
By the next sunset, I had eloped with Marilee
By the next sunset, I had eloped with Marilee
By the next sunset, I had eloped with Marilee

And my sweet Annette was left standing at the alter
