lyrics

Well it's Friday night downtown, all the boys are gettin' there
There's strangers in her bed and flowers in her hair
She is singing, she's dancing, a song for every man
You've never met a woman like dear old Saintly Anne

You've never met a woman like dear old Saintly Anne
With the reddest lips, the fullest hips, and a sympathetic hand
All you women shake your heads, all you men say a prayer
For dear old Saintly Anne

See I was just a young lad when I met old Saintly Anne
I was comin' home one evening, she came runnin' 'round the bend
She caught my eye and smiled and drew me by the hand
Took me back to her room and made me into a man

It was early into August when we lost old Saintly Anne
She fell asleep one evening with the fever in her chest
No preacher spoke her funeral, no tombstone on the ground
But she lives on in the heart of every man in the town
