lyrics

I was singing for my supper in a bar called The Davy Lamp
When Blue eyed Annie came waltzing in with a feather in her cowboy hat
I knew I was in trouble by the end of the second verse
The way she was smiling at me, I forgot all the words

Blue eyed Annie
Oh Lord you’re pretty
But I think your boyfriend wants to hit me
If you don’t stop looking at me like that

An hour later and I’m at the bar, I guess I’m buying her a drink
Whiskey and water when she takes a sip
She rests her head on my chest
I take a deep breath and ask myself
How am I getting out of this mess?
I curse my lucky stars

Blue eyed Annie
Oh Lord you’re pretty
But your boyfriend definitely wants to hit me
Cause you won't stop looking at me like that

Well that’s all’s fair man, this is love and war
But why does that bastard have to be seven feet tall?
That really don’t seem fair man…

Well bruises heal and broken hearts they’ll mend
So I’ll take my chances on this road to Hell
Blue eyed Annie, keep looking at me like that

Bruises heal and broken hearts they’ll mend
So I’ll take my chances on this road to Hell
Blue eyed Annie, keep looking at me like that
Blue eyed Annie, keep looking at me like that

about

Steve Wallis Paris, France

Steve Wallis writes honest, clear eyed folk songs, driven by his shrewd fingerstyle guitar, and his wry gift for finding joy in the melancholy. His songs are old letters from ex lovers, regrets folded into fond souvenirs, that final glance back before rushing onwards.

In 2018, Steve's song 'Melbourne Rain' reached new success after it was featured in PS4 game Detroit: Become Human.
