Big Time Annie's Square Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

I came back to find my Annie'd moved away
To some town in California close in something
Somewhere close to East L.A.
Don't think finding her was easy
'Cause something sure had changed my Tulsa girl
But I came here to show my love
And try to understand her crazy world

I was thrilled because she greeted me with joy
And was glad she still remembered
Well enough to know someone she called her boy
And I've heard about those sugar cubes
Before I ever came to find her there
I was glad to be excepted
Even though I've known as big time Annie's square

I'm just big time Annie's leaning post
Someone she can turn to now and then
Annie says, I'm feeble, Annie's friends don't question
The square John known as big time Annie's friend

Well, sometimes I feel happy through and through
And I always find excuses
For anything my Annie wants to do
We don't agree on nothin'
But I'll be danged if we don't make the pair
My friends call her hippie
And her friends call me big time Annie's square

I'm just big time Annie's leaning post
Someone she can turn to now and then
Annie says, I'm feeble, Annie's friends don't question
The square John known as big time Annie's friend
