Annie's Lover - Lyrics

Annie's lover was a medicine man, and he roamed the chokes and boulders
hick'ry staddle in his big black hand and a star upon his shoulder
he'd go down to the meadow at night; he would dance in the firefly light
and she would dream like a pagan queen when he'd hold her

annie's lover was a wildcat's brother and the badger's mad companion
in his rainbow beads and his straw hat he was the king of mercy canyon

in the winter she would trade her crown for boots of buckskin leather
rise up singin' when the sun went down and ride out on the heather
they would meet in the meadow at night; they would dance in the fey moonlight
dip and spin, and skate the wind like feathers

'cause annie's lover was a wildcat's brother and the badger's mad companion
in his rainbow beads and his straw hat he was the king of mercy canyon

now if you wander in the twilight hills out past the gates of eden
graze your pony where the dark spring spills and surely you will see them
they come down to the meadow at night, there they dance till the mornin' light
and all the bounding saints come 'round to greet them

'cause annie's lover was a wildcat's brother and the badger's mad companion
in his rainbow beads and his straw hat he was the king of mercy canyon

he was the king of mercy canyon
