Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Greg Anton

Greg Anton has written a novel, "Face The Music", about Woody, a street musician who, inspired by the love of his life, Stephanie, writes a song that could launch his musical career. Greg Anton recorded "Stephanie" with lyrics by Robert Hunter with a band including Steve Kimock on guitar, Melvin Seals on organ, Robin Sylvester on bass and Tim Hockenberry on vocals.

Thanks to Kerry for help with the lyrics.

Stephanie, don't blame it on me
Didn't mean to fall in love
But I fell for you
As I was born to do

Stephanie, by the edge of the sea
Wind and waves and sand
Didn't mean to fall
Stephanie, give me your hand
Give me your hand

Once inside a dream
I wandered all alone
I had a feeling something was missing
I felt it deep down in my bone
Love isn't what I planned much
Your eyes, your lips, your smile, your hair
I see your face, I see you everywhere

Oh, my heart's busted open
My sky's cerulean blue
Don't need rain for a rainbow
As long as I've got you

Come stand here by me
I fell in love with you
As I was born to do
As I was born to do
