Patty Griffin: "Mary"

Duration 4:13



by Patty Griffin


Mary


Mary

You're covered in roses
You're covered in ashes
You're covered in rain
You're covered in baby's
You're covered in slashes
You're covered in wilderness
You're covered in stains
You cast aside the sheets
You cast aside the shroud
Of another man who serves the world proud
And you greet another son and you lose another one
On some sunny day and always you stay
Mary

Jesus said mother I couldn't stay another day longer
He flies right by and leaves a kiss upon her face
While the angels were singing his praises in a blaze of glory
Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place

Oh Mary
She moves behind me
She leaves her fingerprints everywhere
Every time the snow drifts
Every way the sand shifts
Even when the night lifts she's always there

Jesus said mother I couldn't stay another day longer
He flies right by and leaves a kiss upon her face
While the angels were singing his praises in a blaze of glory
Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place

Oh Mary
You're covered in roses
You're covered in ruins
You're covered in secrets
Your'e covered in treetops
Covered in birds
Who can sing a million songs without any words
You cast aside the sheets
You cast aside the shroud
Of another man who served the world proud
And you greet another son, and you lose another one
On some sunny day and always you stay

Mary
