Bb          C             F
No one ever noticed Annie weeping.

Bb         C                   Dm  C  Bb
People all around, but she was all alone.

Gm             C            Am              Dm
Mama's got her meetings and Daddy's got his job,

Bb                   C               Dm C   Bb     F
but no one's got the time so Annie's on her own.



Bb          C        F
No one ever knew her desperation.

Bb              C                Dm C  Bb
People couldn't hear her cry out silently.

Gm                C             Am            Dm
Locked inside the bathroom she grabs a jar of pills.

Bb                C                 Dm  C       Bb
The medicine that cures becomes the poison that kills.



1st CHORUS
==========

Bb  C    Dm           C      Bb                  F
And it's too late for Annie. She's gone away for good.

Bb                       C            Bb             C
There's so much we could tell her and now we wish we could.

             Bb C           Dm C     F
But it's too late, it's too late for Annie.



Bb                C                 F
Sadness fills the hearts of Annie's family.

Bb             C            Dm C  Bb
Daddy tries to comfort Mama uselessly.

Gm                       C                   Am            Dm
They hoped she knew they loved her, but they really didn't know.

Bb                C                  Dm C Bb
They just want to know why did their baby go.



2nd CHORUS
========== 

Bb  C    Dm           C      Bb                  F
And it's too late for Annie. She's gone away for good.

Bb                      C               Bb                 C
There's so much that we could tell her, and now we wish we could.

         Dm             C          Dm             C 
We would tell her Jesus loves her, tell her Jesus cares.

Dm              C                Dm C    Bb
Tell her He can free her and her burdens bear.

             Bb C           Dm C     F
But it's too late, it's too late for Annie.



Bb                C         F
If only we'd have known her situation,

Bb                 C                 Dm C  Bb
We'd have tried to stop this useless tragedy.

Gm           C        Am          Dm
Annie's lost forever, never to be found.

Bb                    C               Dm  C   Bb
But there are lots of others like her all around.



3rd CHORUS
========== 

Bb       C   Dm           C          Bb               F
And it's not too late for Annie. She could be next to you.

      Bb                 C        Bb                 C
Don't miss the chance to tell her before her life is through.

         Dm             C          Dm             C 
We gotta Tell her Jesus loves her, Tell her Jesus cares.

Dm              C                Dm C    Bb  C
Tell her He can free her and her burdens bear.

Dm             C          Dm       C
Tell her Jesus loves her, Tell her Jesus cares.

Dm              C                Dm C    Bb  C
Tell her He can free her and her burdens bear.

              Dm             C          Dm             C
You've got to tell her Jesus loves her, Tell her Jesus cares.

Dm              C                Dm C    Bb
Tell her He can free her and her burdens bear.

              Dm  
It's not, too late
