Mary Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Now, Mary wasn't happy with the life that she led
She was a simple girl without much to say
So one day she upped and left her dreary home
And she left all her friends to wander all alone

And at first she was afraid, she was so far away
From her home but slowly she got to like it anyway
Oh, Mary, won't you please come
Mary, won't you please come
Mary, won't you please come home

Well, in time she found
The mountain that she had been taught
Her whole life that she must avoid
And though at first it hurt and no one could comfort her
She finally came to appreciate it

And she liked it, she liked it, oh, wasn't she surprised
And though still alone, she grew so much inside
Oh, Mary, won't you please come
Mary, won't you please come
Mary, won't you please come home

And after a time she became so sublime
She could look in peoples eyes and read their minds
Though her hands would sometimes bleed
And occasionally she would long for her past
And the memories they bring

She decided to return to her old home town
And her heart was burning with all the things she found
Oh, Mary, won't you please come
Mary, won't you please come
Mary, won't you please come
Please come home

So, Mary came back and at first no one recognized her face
And her friends were all a little bit afraid
When they heard what she had to say
They all slowly backed away
And her family took her aside and put their arms around her

They said, "Mary, won't you please come back to us now
There is still time to repent for all your sins"
And Mary started to cry when she realized
That she'd never come home again in her life

Oh, Mary, won't you please come
Mary, won't you please come
Mary, won't you please come
Please come home

Come home
Come home
Come home
...
