Crazy Mary Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
She lived on the curve of the road,
In an old, tar-paper shack
On the south side of the town,
On the wrong side of the tracks
Verse 2
Sometimes on the way into town we'd say:
"Mama, can we stop and give her a ride?"
Sometimes we did,
But her hands flew from her side
Wild eyed, crazy Mary
Verse 3
Down a long dirt road, past the Parson's place
That old blue car we used to race
Little country store
With a sign tacked to the side
Said 'No L-O-I-T-E-are-I-N-G Allowed'
Verse 4
Underneath that sign
Always congregated quite a crowd
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
Verse 5
One night thunder cracked,
Mercy backed outside her window sill
Dreamed I was flying high above the trees,
Over the hills
Looked down into the house of Mary
Bare bulb hung, newspaper-covered walls,
And Mary rising above it all
Verse 6
Next morning on the way into town
Saw some skid marks and followed them around
Over the curve, through the fields,
Into the house of Mary
Verse 7
That what you fear the most,
Could meet you halfway
That what you fear the most,
Could meet you halfway
Verse 8
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
