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"
