Bringing Mary Home

Song Author Joe Kingston , Joe Kingston , Chaw Monk og Chaw Monk Performer: Red Sovine Submitted by: Anonymous

[D7]I was driving down a lonely road on a [C]dark and stormy [G]night
When a [D7]little girl by the road side showed [C]up in my head[D7]lights
I [G]stopped and she got in the back and in a shaky [D7]tone   
She [C]said My name is [A7]Mary and please [D7]won't you take me [G]home

She [D7]must have been so frightened all [C]alone there in the [G]night
There was [D7]something strange about her cause her [C]face was deathly [D7]white
She [G]sat so pale and quiet in the back seat all [D7]alone
I [C]never will [A7]forget the night that [D7]I took Mary [G]home

I [D7]pulled into the drive way where [C]she told me to [G]go  
Got [D7]out to help her from the car and [C]opened up the [D7]door   
But I [G]just could not believe my eyes the back seat was [D7]bare   
I [C]looked all [A7]around the car but [D7]Mary wasn't [G]there

A [D7]light shone from the porch a [C]lady opened up the [G]door
I [D7]asked about the little girl that [C]I was looking [D7]for   
The [G]lady gently smiled at me and brushed a tear [D7]away   
She [C]said it sure was [A7]nice of you to [D7]go out of your [G]way  

But thir[D7]teen years ago tonight in a [C]wreck just down the [G]road
Our [D7]darling Mary lost her life [C]and we miss her [D7]so   
Oh [G]thank you for your trouble and the kindness you have [D7]shown
You're the [C]thirteenth one that's [A7]been here [D7]bringing Mary [G]home


I was driving down a lonely road on a dark and stormy night
When a little girl by the road side showed up in my headlights
I stopped and she got in the back and in a shaky tone
She said My name is Mary and please won't you take me home

She must have been so frightened all alone there in the night
There was something strange about her cause her face was deathly white
She sat so pale and quiet in the back seat all alone
I never will forget the night that I took Mary home

I pulled into the drive way where she told me to go
Got out to help her from the car and opened up the door
But I just could not believe my eyes the back seat was bare
I looked all around the car but Mary wasn't there

A light shone from the porch a lady opened up the door
I asked about the little girl that I was looking for
The lady gently smiled at me and brushed a tear away
She said it sure was nice of you to go out of your way

But thirteen years ago tonight in a wreck just down the road
Our darling Mary lost her life and we miss her so
Oh thank you for your trouble and the kindness you have shown
You're the thirteenth one that's been here bringing Mary home
