"Anna Lee" as written by John Robert Cardwell, Philip Abram Dickey and William Lincoln Knauer....
Anna Lee
If you were me
Would you grab for all the good things that you see?
Broken throat and a heart that bleeds
Stomach's trembling and I'm getting weak in the knees

Look at now how far we've gone
I won't take seeing watch you go
Seven hours before we go

    General CommentThese are probably very incorrect, but I thought they were better than nothing. Tell me if I'm completely wrong and I'll fix it.

    General CommentFor the second portion, I hear:
    'If you found out how far we've gone'
    'I've been stressing marching on'
    'Seven hours before it's done'

    Then:

    Anna Lee
    'You're almost free'
    'I'm not to cause of all the good things that you see'
    Broken throat and a heart that bleeds
    Stomach's trembling and I'm getting weak in the knees

    I don't know. These are pretty tough to hear perfectly clear. Fantastic song though. Screaming, broken heart over Anna Lee being happy with all the good things that are not caused by him and that kills.

    General CommentIn all honesty, don't beat yourself up trying to decipher these. They may be the hardest lyrics to figure out.
