lyrics

There's a half moon the horizon tell me where should I be.
Outside Terre Haute far from you Anna Lee.
I've seen nothing but a bad look from a dimestore cashier, earth cut for rail cars and men slaughtering steer.
The moon hangs like a puppet strung up by fine lace left to rot before daylight with the rest of this place.
(chorus)
So please, pick up I'm calling.
Anna Lee, I feel like I'm falling.
This half moon is looking on me with a sneer and I've forgotten every reason I ever came here.

I know this road well but I've never felt more lost.
I don't see much haze since I quit drinking the sauce.
I swear by the stars that shine down on me that I've never been more in love than I am with you Anna Lee.
Tell my daughter I'll be home in three days.
Tell my brother and cousins that I'll bring home beaujolais.
I'm walking a straight line trying hard not to sin but Terre Haute Indiana has got me drinking again.
(chorus)

This ain't a tall tale, its true life exposed through the eyes of a madman with a pinnochio nose.
Some roads will lead you one way and some will drive you to the ground.
Some roads will lead you right back into town.
(chorus)
