Mary Don't You Weep

Original and similar lyrics
Oh Oh Mary Oh Oh Mary Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Didn't Pharaoh's army get drowned? Oh, Mary, don't you weep. Well, Satan got mad and he knows I'm glad. Missed that soul that he thought he had. Now, didn't Pharaoh's army get drowned? Oh, Mary, don't you weep. Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Didn't Pharaoh's army get drowned? Oh, Mary, don't you weep. Well, one of these nights around twelve o'clock, This old town's gonna really rock. Didn't Pharaoh's army get drowned? Oh, Mary, don't you weep. Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Didn't Pharaoh's army get drowned? Oh, Mary, don't you weep. Cheer up, sisters and don't you cry. There'll be good times bye and bye. Didn't Pharaoh's army get drowned? Oh, Mary, don't you weep. Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Didn't Pharaoh's army get drowned? Oh, Mary, don't you weep. Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn. Didn't Pharaoh's army get drowned? Oh, Mary, don't you weep.

Oh Mary, Don't You Weep

ARLO GUTHRIE
Oh Mary don't you weep for me Oh Mary just you wait for me The battle will soon be over Oh Mary don't you weep Jimmy sent a letter to his bride back home For three long years now he's been gone He left her cryin' on her wedding day And went to fight the battle of the Blue and Gray Oh Mary don't you weep for me Oh Mary just you wait for me The war's gonna soon be over Oh Mary don't you weep Mary's young heart was filled with joy When she got the letter from her soldier boy His words of love made her heart beat fast But little did she know it would be the last Oh Mary don't you weep for me Oh Mary just you wait for me The battle will soon be over Oh Mary don't you weep On that same day Atlanta burned down Her soldier boy he fell to the ground Now Mary sits alone by the candle light And reads his letter over every night Oh Mary don't you weep for me Oh Mary just you wait for me The war's gonna soon be over Oh Mary don't you weep Oh Mary don't you weep for me Oh Mary just you wait for me The battle's gonna soon be over Oh Mary don't you weep Oh Mary don't you weep Oh Mary don't you weep

Mary's Surgeon

AMANDA PALMER
Mary's surgeon Called me urgent Get down to ward And take...my god! Who would date me in the dark And for this labor I was savoured Tender and braindead It went to my head And we kept our lives If your mouth keeps going where your mind won't go You don't want to choke so chew it slowly Nibble the edges on the kitchen floor If it suits your taste, taste some more If you're worried that it's bitter like a barbie doll Hold your nose and swallow it all If you're worried that it's all gonna go to your hips Roll it round your rosy lips If you're worried that it's all gonna go to your thighs Close your eyes for a big surprise.... And Mary's Surgeon Called me certain Brand new flavour I can savour Such pity for the part Mary's running away where we can't find her Far away from smells that would remind her Her hometown has burned down But you will look Staring at your face reflected in the fetid water What shadows will it cast today Familiar smells of fresh decay You wish that you could flush yourself away Complicity leave your mark And Mary's surgeon Called me urging Lord God, save us It's contagious It's contagious It's contagious

Memorial Day

JAMES MCMURTRY "Childish Things"
Mama keeps tryin' to get the game on the radio Daddy's gotta know the score There's a big yellow thing on a flat bed trailer Wonder what that thing's for We got towels rolled up in the back seat window Keeping us out of the sun Just a hundred more miles and we'll be at grandma's Sure is gonna be fun Maybe she'll take us fishin' Maybe she'll bake us a pie Remember like she did that one time Back before grandpa died It's Memorial Day in America Everybody's on the road Let's remember our fallen heroes Y'all be sure and drive slow Ninety eight degrees in the shade of the tool shed Can't go back in the house They're all in the kitchen yellin' 'bout something Don't know what it's about Joey 'n Mary said not to worry Said it's just the same old fight Happens whenever they all get together Everything's really alright It's Memorial Day in America This is how it's supposed to be Let's remember our fallen heroes In the land of the free Daddy's in the big chair sippin' on a cold beer Grandma's cuttin' a switch She overheard Mary cussin' her brother Called him a son of a bitch She got a good green limb off a sweet gum sapling Man that's bound to sting But Mary don't cry just stands there and takes it Doesn't seem to feel a thing No Mary don't cry, you know she's a big girl Wonder what made her so mad She takes those licks looking in through the den door Staring right straight at her dad There's a big yellow thing on a flat bed trailer Daddy nearly hit that bird They're both in the front seat Starin' right straight ahead Neither one saying a word The sun's going down in the rear view mirror Gonna be driving all night Wonder if the neighbor's fed the canary Wonder if the cat's alright

The Blizzard

JIM REEVES "Tall Tales And Short Tempers"
There's a blizard coming on, how I'm wishing I was home, For my pony's lame, and he can hardly stand. Listen to that norther sigh, if we don't get home we'll die. But, it's only seven miles to Mary Ann's. It's only seven miles to Mary Ann's. You can bet we're on her mind, for it's nearly supertime And I'll bet there's hot bisquets in the pan. Lord, my hands feel like there froze, And there's a numbness in my toes. But, it's only five more miles to Mary Ann's. It's only five more miles to Mary Ann's. That wind's howling and it seems Mighty like a woman's scream. And we'd best be moving faster if we can. Dan just think about that barn, With the hay so soft and warm. For it's only more miles to Mary Ann's, It's only three more miles to Mary Ann's. Dan get up you ornery cuss, or you'll be the death of us. I'm so weary, but I'll help you if I can. Alright Dan, perhaps it's best, if we stop a while and rest. For it's still a hundred yards to Mary Ann's. [Sang] It's still a hundred yards to Mary Ann's. Late that night the storm was gone, They found him there at dawn. He'd-a-made it but he just couldn't leave old Dan. Yes, they found him there on the plains, Hands froze to the reigns. He was just a hundred yards form Mary Ann's. [Sang] He was just a hundred yards from Mary Ann's...
