Her Name Was Mary

Her name was Mary
But they called her Blue
She was the saddest little baby I ever knew
Her daddy run away when she was two
Awe, her name was Mary but they called her Blue

She grew up a lookin' right
And all the boys would come around at night
Call out her name and try to change her will
But she only had eyes for Bill

Awe, she only had eyes for Bill

Billy was the no good son of a no good son
Drinking whiskey and shooting guns
He only saw a woman as a thing to do
Her name was Mary but they called her Blue

Awe, her name was Mary but they called her Blue

Mary had them starry eyes
And Billy was good at telling lies
He said "Mary, I am so in love with you"
She said "Billy you can do what you wanna do"

Awe, Billy did what he wanted to...

She rode in to town one day
Caught Billy talking up Elsie Kay
She said "Billy, I thought you should know, you've got s baby child on the way"

Billy just laughed and said "that's ok"

Elsie said "Billy, what you gonna do?"
Billy said "Her name was Mary, but they called her Blue"

Awe her name is Mary but they call her Blue

So Mary took her life and their unborn daughter
With a bottle full of pills and a glass of water

They said she should've been someone some one adored
But they don't call her Blue no more

Awe, they don't call her Blue no more

Well her name was Mary but they called her Blue
She was the saddest little baby I ever knew
Her Daddy run away when she was two

Awe, her name was Mary but they called her Blue

Her name was Mary but they called her Blue
