O Mary, Don't Weep

Traditional, arr. by Bruce Springsteen

[ do refrain between verses, when you forget the words, ad lib ]

Well if I could I surely would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood
Pharaoh's army got drownded (sic)
O Mary don't you weep

/ G D7 / - G / C G / D7 G / :

O Mary don't you weep, don't you mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't you mourn

Well Mary wore three links and chains
On every link was Jesus' name
Pharoah's... (etc)

Well one of these nights bout 12 o'clock
This old world is gonna rock

Well Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
Smote' the water with a two by four

Well old Mr. Satan he got mad
Missed that soul that he thought he had

Brothers and sisters don't you cry
There'll be good times by and by

God gave Noah the rainbow sign
"No more water but fire next time"
