Mary Lyrics - Ben Harper

Review The Song (0)



( Patty Griffin Cover )

Mary
You're covered in roses
You're covered in ashes
You're covered in rain
You're covered in babies
You're covered in slashes
You're covered in wilderness
You're covered in stains

You cast aside the sheet
You cast aside the shroud
Of another man, who serves the world proud
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
sponsored links
He flies right by and leaves a kiss upon her face
While the angels were singin' his praises in a blaze of glory
Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place

Oh Mary
You move behind me
You leave you fingerprints everywhere
Everytime the snow drifts
Every way the sand shifts
Even when the night lifts, you're always there

You cast aside the sheet
You cast aside the shroud
Of another man, who serves the world proud
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 singin' 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
You're covered in birds
Who can sing a million songs without any words

You cast aside the sheet
You cast aside the shroud
Of another man, who serves the world proud
You greet another son and you lose another one
On some sunny day and always you stay
Always you stay
Mary
Na, na, na...
Oh Mary
