I told Barbara on the Songwriting thread, I'd post the lyrics to this song. The chords are here too. As long as I got the HTML stuff right it should be OK.
 Annabelle                _Gillian Welch

(Capo on 5th fret)

Em C
We lease twenty acres and one Ginny mule
B7 Em
From the Alabama Trust
Em C
For half of the cotton and a third of the corn
B7 Em
We get a handfull of dust

Chorus:
C G
We can not have all things to please us
D Em
No matter how we try,
Em C G
'Til we've all gone to Jesus
D Em C D
We can only wonder why

Had a daughter, called her Annabelle
She's the apple of my eye
Tried to give her something like I never had
Never want to ever hear her cry

(Chorus)
(Inst)

When I'm dead and buried I'll take a hard life of tears
From every day I've ever known
And Anna's in the churchyard, she got no life at all
She only got these words upon the stone

(Chorus)
