      About "Avenging Annie"

      Lyrics for Roger Daltrey - "Avenging Annie"

      They ran through hills and forest
      As two under a spell
      He was a city boy Floyd the outlaw
      And she thought she knew him well.

      Long after that great summer
      When she first came into her fame
      And the avenger from Oklahoma
      Was added to her name
      The avenger she became.

      Well they call her avenging Annie
      The avenger of womanhood
      She spends her whole life telling lies
      These on a mess and over good
      She'll take all these spoilt young hippies
      Running around playing games
      They're surrounding your bed, she'll blow your head
      She'll put you through a change.

      What you've done to others
      She'll do unto you.

      Then she met her sensitive outlaw
      He was the best thing she ever did seen
      She was to be his wife for the rest of her life,
      But she was so blind she could never had seen.
      No!

      So she joined up with her outlaw
      And headed for California.

      He treated her worse than she'd ever imagined
      He didn't say he didn't want her around
      He kept it up so long, she couldn't be strong
      He run her right into the ground.

      After five long years,
      He picked her up and slapped her down.

      Then she told her friends about him
      They all were on her side
      But she could see through the haze he looked so pale
      She put her head right down and she cried.

      For her poor lover
      She cried like a mother for her poor lover.

      And now she lives on a mountain top
      And she's almost thirty-five
      And she's found her peace and found her release
      Happy just to be alive.

      And she might go back to her Floyd
      If she thinks it's the thing to do
      He gave up murder and theft after she left
      And you know she still loves him to
      Just like a worn out shoe
      Just like a worn out shoe
      Just like a worn out shoe
      Just like a worn out shoe
      Just like a worn out shoe
      Just like a worn out shoe
      Just like a worn out shoe

      Well they call her avenging Annie
      The avenger of womanhood
      She spends her whole life telling lies
      Leads them on a mess and over good.
