lyrics

Mary

Looking for answers in some burnt grass
Nothing left of that home
A broken women, when her love was lost
Never liked to sing alone

Found a silver dollar made in 45’
Next to a ring made of gold
I thought it would be enough to get her through this
Not fifty miles from the road

Oh Mary we heard you cry
Oh Mary when times were low
Oh Mary there is nothing left here
We can still hear you singing from the road

I saw smoke paint the sky for miles
My shoes weighed heavy from the hurt
All the nights away from the one I loved
Only to come home to dirt

Oh Mary we heard you cry
Oh Mary when times were low
Oh Mary there is nothing left here

I never meant to be gone for so long
Leave behind an empty bed
I can still hear the singing
The voices that danced in her head

Oh Mary we heard you cry
Oh Mary when times were low
Oh Mary there is nothing left here
Can still hear you singing from the road
Oh Mary it’s time to go
