"Annie" as written by and Eric Patrick/lane Clapton....
Oh, look stand tall, Annie
See the world grow small, Annie
But when will it fall, Annie, when will it be

Winter has come, Annie
No friend in the sun, Annie
And when it's gone, Annie
Where shall we be?

All those colors have faded
When ol' Jack comes to call
Don't tell him no, tell him maybe
Oh now, Annie, may God bless us all
Oh yes Annie, God bless us all

Did the children they call, Annie?
Every leaf must fall, Annie
God bless us all, Annie
Where ever will be

    Song MeaningRonnie wrote this with his wife, Kate Lambert and his mate Eric Clapton. They wrote it at Fishpool Farm near Bishop’s Castle in Shropshire, England on the Welsh border.

    Annie was the Lane’s babysitter and lived down the road in an old cottage. She’d come around every evening around 6, whether they needed her or not and would help Kate out with the kids and things.

    Old Jack was another neighbour who was always at the farm.

    Eric wasn’t a great friend of Ronnie until he left the Faces and moved to Shropshire. He liked to visit them there as he was overcoming his battles with addiction.
