The Wind Cries Mary

Song Author Jimi Hendrix Lyrics by: Jimi Hendrix Performer: Jimi Hendrix Submitted by: Anonymous
[Eb]    [E]    [F]    [Eb]    [E]    [F]    
[C]After all the [Bb]jacks are in their [F]boxes
[C]And the clowns have [Bb]all gone to [F]bed  
[C]You can hear happiness
[Bb]staggering on [F]down the street
[G]Footsteps [Bb]dressed in [Eb]red   [E]    [F]    
[G]And the [Bb]wind whispers [Eb]Mar   [E]y  [F]    [Eb]    [E]    [F]    

[C]A broom is [Bb]drearily [F]sweeping
[C]Up the broken peices of [Bb]yesterday's [F]life
[C]Somewhere a [Bb]queen is [F]weeping
[G]Somewhere a [Bb]king has no [Eb]wif   [E]e  [F]    
[G]And the wind [Bb]cries [Eb]Mar   [E]y  [F]    [Eb]    [E]    [F]    

[C]The traffic lights turn [Bb]blue to[F]morrow
[C]And shine the emptyness [Bb]down on my [F]bed  
[C]The tiny island [Bb]sags [F]downstream
[G]Cause the life that [Bb]lived is [Eb]dea   [E]d  [F]    
[G]And the wind [Bb]screams [Eb]Mar   [E]y  [F]    [Eb]    [E]    [F]    

[C]Will the wind [Bb]ever re[F]member
[C]The names it has [Bb]blown in the [F]past
[C]With its crutch, its old [Bb]age, and its [F]wisdom
[G]It whispers no, this will [Bb]be the [Eb]las   [E]t  [F]    
[G]And the wind [Bb]cries [Eb]Mar   [E]y   [F]    
[Eb]    [E]    [F]    
[Eb]    [E]    [F]    
[Eb]    [E]    [F]    


After all the jacks are in their boxes
And the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness
staggering on down the street
Footsteps dressed in red
And the wind whispers Mary

A broom is drearily sweeping
Up the broken peices of yesterday's life
Somewhere a queen is weeping
Somewhere a king has no wife
And the wind cries Mary

The traffic lights turn blue tomorrow
And shine the emptyness down on my bed
The tiny island sags downstream
Cause the life that lived is dead
And the wind screams Mary

Will the wind ever remember
The names it has blown in the past
With its crutch, its old age, and its wisdom
It whispers no, this will be the last
And the wind cries Mary
