Capo 2nd fret

Am                               F
 She lived on a curve in the road in an old tar paper shack
Am                                 F
 on the south side of town, on the wrong side of the tracks
C                 G                           F
 Sometimes on our way into town we'd say, "Mama, can we stop and give her a ride?"
Am            G            F
 Sometimes we did, but her hands flew from her side
F          G        Am      F     Am     F
Wild-eyed, crazy Mary

Am                     F
 Down a long dirt road, past the Parson's place
Am                 F
 That old blue car, we use to race
C           G                  F
 A little country store with a sign tacked to the side
        Am                   F
Said no L-O-I-T-E-R-I-N-G allowed
Am                                 F
 Underneath that sign always congregated quite a crowd
Am                       G    F                G
 Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
Am                       G    F                G
 Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
Am                       G               F          G          Am
 Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it a, pass it a, pass it around

 One night, thunder cracked, mercy backed outside her window sill
Dsus2
 Dreamed I was flying high above the trees, over the hills
Asus2
 Looked down into the house of Mary
E               Dsus2                   Asus2
 Bare bulb hung, newspaper covered walls and Mary rising up above it all

Am
 Next morning on our way into town
F
 Saw some skid marks and followed them around
Am                          F                         Am
 Over the curb, through the fields, into the house of Mary
              G                            F
That what you fear the most could meet you halfway,
              G                            F
That what you fear the most could meet you halfway,
Am                       G    F                G
 Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
Am                       G    F                G
 Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
Am                       G               F          G          Am     F
 Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it a, pass it a, pass it around
