David Allan Coe - Crazy Mary guitar chord

David Allan Coe - Crazy Mary

Capo 1

D A D A

Chorus:

D

Crazy Mary from London Berry

C#

Lives next door to the cemetery

C

How many lovers have you buried

G

We would shout, running scared

D C# B

Along the green and golden paths

A C C# D A

That took us home, away from Crazy Mary.

D

In the lamplight burning low

C#

Dimly through enchanted woods

C

She rocks beside the fire that never was lit

G D C# B

And as we ran on by

A

Pretending to be frightened

D A

We'd shout and laugh at Crazy Mary.

D

She would never answer us

C#

Smiled through the window softly

C

Wild-eyed and wild-haired but we were sure

G D

That in the dark of night

C# B A

She cursed us soundly, casting spells

C# D

And such to turn us into donkeys.

Chorus:

D

So it seems that older now

C#

We stand upon this wind-swept moor

C

The lonely grave before us

G D C# B

Testifies that Crazy Mary sings and dreams

B

He dreams somewhere

A C C# D A

But not where little kids can follow after

D

And on the stone, these words, dear friend

C#

Please write me down as one who loved

C

The raven-haired and laughing lads

G

That swore that they would marry me

D C# C

And soon their sons came running by

C# D A

And here I lie, forgotten, Crazy Mary.

Chorus:

D A
