Mary Lee

By: K. Sutherland / J. Haines

 I Got In Town Tonight
I Wasn’t Feeling Right
Stopped In A Lonely Bar For A Drink Or Two
The Lights Were Turned Down Low
And The Whiskey Started To Flow
Then I Saw A Girl Looking Lonely Too

  She Was A Wild Barroom Woman
Looked Just Like The Girl I Used To Know
The Girl I Left In Tennessee With Our Daughter Mary Lee
And On A Night Like This, I Miss Them So

  I Drank The Whiskey Down
Moved My Mind Around
The Jukebox Played A Song From Way Back Home
She Put Her Hand On Mine
Oh Lord It Felt So Fine
She Said “Hey, There Ain’t No Cause To Drink Alone”

  She Was A Wild Barroom Woman
Looked Just Like The Girl I Used To Know
The Girl I Left In Tennessee With Our Daughter Mary Lee
And On A Night Like This, I Miss Them So

  And God Knows I Wanted More
But I Had Felt That Hand Before
I Closed My Eyes
And Saw A Memory
And When She Said Her Name
I Cried Out Loud In Shame
She Said: “Everybody Calls Me Mary Lee”

  She Was A Wild Barroom Woman
Looked Just Like The Girl I Used To Know
The Girl I Left In Tennessee With Our Daughter Mary Lee
And On A Night Like This, I Miss Them So

  She Was A Wild Wild Wild Barroom Woman
Looked Just Like The Girl I Used To Know
The Girl I Left In Tennessee With Our Daughter Mary Lee
And On A Night Like This, I Miss Them So
