David Allan Coe – Little Orphan Annie lyrics

Play your fiddle Little Orphan Annie
Play it for the shrimpers and the pirates out to sea
Play it for the hippies down in Mallory Square
If I'm not there won't you play a song for me

We all called her Little Orphan Annie at the playground
Merry go merry go merry go round
Till she picked her fiddle up we always put her down
When she picked her fiddle up they come for miles around to hear her play
[ fiddle ]
Play your fiddle Little Orphan Annie...
[ fiddle - mandolin ]
Aw Mad Dog Diamond Jim Richmond from the Tennessee Hot Band
John Hartford on the banjo oh Diamond my oldest son Dale
John Hartford playin' the fiddle and the banjo Diamond Jim

    Annie (at that time Ann Schremp now Ann (Curtis) Kincaid) went to see David perform at a large venue (I don't remenber where). Her husband, Brian, knows David. The all lived in the Flordia Keys. David asked Ann to sit in on rehersal and was so impressed that he asked her to perform at the concert. She continued to perform with him on occasion. He subsequently wrote "Little Orphan Annie" about her.
