Anna Lee

I can still hear the wedding bells
And see you dressed in white
I remember our honeymoon
And the passion in your eyes

I can still see our little boy
On the night that he was born
Saw the wild look in your eyes
Your pain left my heart torn

Chorus:
Oh Anna Lee, how could you leave
Didn’t you hear our little boy crying in the night?
Oh Anna Lee, well I know you’ve got your needs
But you took the light right out of his eyes

I can still see your lovely face
Grow hard as our baby cried
Watched you turn away from him
Saw the coldness in your eyes

I’m a grown man and I know
Why you left us on that day
But our little boy can’t understand
How you could just walk away

Chorus:
Oh Anna Lee, how could you leave
Didn’t you hear our little boy crying in the night?
Oh Anna Lee, well I know you’ve got your needs
But you took the light right out of his eyes

He’s outgrown his teddy bears
But he doesn’t want more toys
All he wants for Christmas now
Is just once to hear your voice

Bridge:
I know you tried to mother him
But you gave up way too soon
Wish you could hear his prayers
Asking God to watch over you

Chorus:
Oh Anna Lee, how could you leave
Didn’t you hear our little boy crying in the night?
Oh Anna Lee, well I know you’ve got your needs
But you took the light right out of his eyes

Chorus:
Oh Anna Lee, how could you leave
Didn’t you hear our little boy crying in the night?
Oh Anna Lee, well I know you’ve got your needs
But you took the light right out of his eyes
