Annie wanders on the land
She loves the freedom of the air
She finds a friend in every place she goes...
There's always a face she knows
I wish that I was there

She says 'I'm leaving here tomorrow...
To find a new town far away'
She says 'Won't you come too...
You need a break,...
You'd love to wake up somewhere new,...
And find another day'

But I live in the city
And imagine country scenes
Poor among the rich
Within four walls and out of reach
I live behind a screen

She smiles as one who loves to smile
To show that she is free
But is she thinking now it's time
To wander back again
To see her firends and me

We all live in the city
And imagine country scenes
Poor among the rich
Within four walls and out of reach
We live behind a screen

    General CommentFrom the Fotheringay album. This has always been my favourite Denny song. I like the sentiment, she sings beautifully and the guitar work is excellent. My grown-up daugther is on the way to 'being free'. I envy her that.
