cd imgTHE ROLLING THUNDER REVUE: THE LIVE 1975 RECORDINGS

  Rolling Thunder Revue, Seacrest Motel rehearsals, Falmouth MA - 29.oct.1975  

It was down by Christ Church that i first met with Annie
A neat little girl an' not a bit shy
She told me her father who'd come from Dungannon
Would take her back home in the sweet bye and bye

An' what's it to any man whether or no
Whether i'm easy or whether i'm true
As i lifted her petticoat easy and slow
An' i rolled back my sleeves to unbuckle the shoe

It was down Thomas Street an' out by the Liffey
The sunlight has gone down, and the evening grew dark
Down by King's Bridge, and by God in a jiffy
My arms were around her, beyond in the park

An' what's it to any man whether or no
Whether i'm easy or whether i'm true
As i lifted her petticoat easy and slow
An' i rolled back my sleeves to unbuckle the shoe

Down in city or country, a girl is a jewel
An' well built for grippin' as most of them are
Ah but a young man would be really a fool
To try it the first time and go a bit far

An' what's it to any man whether or no
Whether i'm easy or whether i'm true
As i lifted her petticoat easy and slow
An' i rolled back my sleeves to unbuckle the shoe

Now if by a chance you're in the town of Dungannon
You might search till your eyeballs are empty and blind
Be you sittin' or walkin' or runnin' or standin'
A girl like Annie you never will find

An' what's it to any man whether or no
Whether I'm easy or whether i'm true
As i lifted her petticoat easy and slow
An' i rolled back my sleeves to unbuckle her shoe.  up
