Lyrics

Come with me, dear Annabelle, the carnival’s in town
Press my shirt, and shine my shoes, and lay my best suit down
You know that I got paid today, I've got to have my fun
And you will go along with me, through caravans we'll run

Spinning in the distance, the ferris wheel's in sight
Come ride with me dear Annabelle, before I end the night
I would like another turn before I'm headed home
Come ride with me dear Annabelle, so we can be alone

None but our car was full, she was seated at my side
And as our carriage reached the top, I threw her from the ride
I ran to inspect the wreck, I forced tears from my eyes
And at first glance, it must have seemed like my true love had died

The startled crowd surrounded me as I tried to pretend
Some tragedy's befallen this poor and broken man
We cried our tears of sorrow, but they did not understand
That my poor woman Annabelle had died by my own hand

Come with me dear Annabelle, I've got to have my fun
And you will go along with me until I say we're done.
