Me and my Annette, we was as fond as we could be
We was set to marry in October 33
I set my sights on courtinher, as fine as she could be
I never even 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, eatinhomemade ice cream
I swear I never noticed maid of honor, Marilee
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter.

Marilee was taken ill, it was several miles from home
Back then it wasn抰 fittinfor a girl to leave alone
Sweet Annette, she asked me to walk her to the door
As innocent as children back before the war
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter.

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

My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter.
