This is the most advanced song in this section, as it uses four chords.

Once again, it may be helpful to skip ahead to the next lesson and listen to the song a few times, so you can begin to familiarize yourself with it.

That will make it much easier to learn to play.

NOTE: In this video, I stated there is no intro to this song. That was incorrect. When we move ahead to the play-along, you will find here is an Intro that consists of 4 measures of G.

You'll find the lyrics, and a chart, below.

SKEETER LOVES ANNIE (Lyrics)

VERSE:
Skeeter, he's an odd one
I don't get his ways
Last I saw he was down by the water
Now he ain't been around for days

Skeeter is a singer
Sings to himself and self alone
When he thinks no one can hear him
He croons his one and only song
And it goes...

CHORUS:
Annie, you're my keeper
Annie, you're my find
Any way you rock me
It's the only thing that saves my mind
Oh Annie, I can't wait
to take you out another time

VERSE:
Skeeter loves his Annie
More than any living girl
Marvels at her beauty
Every time her sails unfurl

They go out dancing,
Through the harbor to the sound,
Two step and a Tango
Cross a dance floor with no ground
Hes singing…

CHORUS:
Annie, you're my keeper
Annie, you're my find
Any way you rock me
It's the only thing that saves my mind
Oh Annie, I can't wait
to take you out another time

VERSE:
Skeeter doesn't say much
Though he told me this himself
He made a replica of Annie
Put it right up on his shelf

End of conversation
And he's off to sing his song
Nothing's gonna change him
Guess we'll just have to sing along

CHORUS:
Annie, you're my keeper
Annie, you're my find
Any way you rock me
It's the only thing that saves my mind
Oh Annie, I can't wait
to take you out another time
