My Sweet Annette 
By The Drive-By Truckers

Capo 3

Bm                           G
Me and my Annette, we was as fond as we could be 
D                        A
We was set to marry in October 33 
  Bm                                G
I set my sights to courtin’ her, as fine as she could be 
  D                      A  
I never even noticed her best friend Marilee 


Took a job at the saw mill and I bought my girl a ring 
Had a pre-wedding party, close friends and family 
Everything was fine, eatin’ homemade ice cream 
I swear I never noticed maid of honor, Marilee 


Chorus:
Bm               G                        D      A   
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter
Bm               G                        D      A
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter


Marilee was taken ill, it was several miles from home 
Back then it wasn’t fittin’ for a girl to leave alone 
Sweet Annette, she asked me to walk her to the door 
As innocent as children back before the war 

Chorus 

Lord have mercy for what we done
Lord have mercy when to people get alone 
Neither one of us had done anything like that you see 
By the next sunset, I had eloped with Marilee, 

Chorus

I believe the chord progression is as follows: Em - G - D - A there is also a bridge in the song as follows: D - F#

Tune down guitar, like most DBT songs, and the chord progression is Am, C, G, D.
