Subject: Lyr Req: Annabel(le?) - Wolfe Tones or Dubliners
From: Mrrzy
Date: 27 Jul 07 - 04:10 PM

Hi, I am looking for the song about the Irish Annabel(le) who's bored in her life, so she goes off to Dublin, but it's too crazy so she goes to London (maybe the other way around), and ends up her great adventure putting pickles in a jar all day long in some factory... Nothing in the Forum, nothing in the Trad... help? thanks!

What are you looking for? Lyrics? Chords? When I get home, I may be able to transcribe it for you.

All the best,

Mick

ANNABELL
Songwriter unknown - Wolfe Tones recording

One fine day by the old mill stream,
There lived this girl, and her name was Annabella;
She lived there with her ma and da,
Did this girl, and her name, her name was Annabell.

She was sweet as the flowers in May,
'til one day she ran away from home and
Packed her things and took to the road,
With a few possessions in a case she'd borrowed from a friend.

But the neon signs of Dub-a-lin made her dizzy for a while;
She's lookin' for the brighter things, she's found they're not her style;
She'll head across the water, where she hopes there's brighter things.
This bird has taken wings, she looks for brighter things.
Where discontentment brings resentment, as this girl looks for excitement.

In a house on the old Kent Road,
There lived this girl, and her name was Annabella;
She lives there in this small abode,
In a lonely room, and there she's feeling lost amongst the crowd.

And every morning at half past eight,
Down she goes through the factory gate,
And clocks her card in the factory hall,
And for eight hours, you know, this girl puts pickles in a jar.

But the neon signs of London made her dizzy for a while;
She's lookin' for the quieter things, she's found they're not her style;
She'll head across the water, where she knows there's quieter things.
This bird has taken wings, she looks for quieter things.
Where discontentment brings resentment, as this girl looks for contentment.

la - la- la, etc....

There's nowhere else like home.


from the Wolfe Tones CD, Sing Out for Ireland



Any corrections?
Anybody know the songwriter name? It' certainly not traditional, but it's a nice song.
