Harry Connick, Jr. Smokey Mary Lyrics

Last updated: 02/16/2014 03:42:29 AM

She boarded in the Faubourg Marigny
And she rode it to the banks of the inland sea
A dime for a ride but all the babies they ride for free.
She told 'em she was lookin' for a boy
That left her in Chicago, Illinois
She forgot all about him when she found her Milneburg Joy (yeah).

Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Smokey Mary!)
They cater to the Pontchartrain.
Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Smokey Mary!)
Boogie-woogie choo-choo train.

It was a perfect, sunny Sunday afternoon (yeah)
Jelly Roll's band was playin' her favorite tune
'Bout a man name Jim and they danced until the moon.
He left her at the station in the pourin' rain (mmm)
And she asked him, if she'd ever see him again
He said she could find him on Bourbon and Dumaine.

Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Smokey Mary!)
They cater to the Pontchartrain.
Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Smokey Mary!)
Boogie-woogie choo-choo train.

Sometimes she still hears the "chug" in her head,
Still smells the smoke in her nose,
Wears his ring on her finger when she rise from her bed,
Still wears the bells on her toes (yeah)

PIANO SOLO (Choo choo choo)

Sometimes she still hears the "chug" in her head,
Still smells the smoke in her nose,
Wears his ring on her finger when she rise from her bed,
She still wears the bells on her toes.

He left her at the station in the pourin' rain
She asked him, if she'd ever, ever see him again
He said she could find him on Bourbon and Dumaine.

Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Smokey Mary!)
They cater to the Pontchartrain.
Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Smokey Mary!)
Boogie-woogie choo-choo train.

Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Smokey Mary!)
They cater to the Pontchartrain.
Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Choo-choo Mary!)
Boogie-woogie choo-choo train.

Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Smokey Mary!)
They cater to the Pontchartrain.
Wooo-oooo, Smokey Mary (Choo-choo-choo Mary!)
Boogie-woogie choo-choo train.

"ALL ABOARD!!!"
