Song title: O Mary don't you weep


O Mary don't you weep

Well if I could I surely would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn
O Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn
Pharaoh's army get drownded
O Mary, don't you weep

Well Mary wore 3 links of chain
on every link was a Jesus' name
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn
O Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn
Pharaoh's army get drownded
Oh, Mary, don't you weep

Well one of these nights bout 12 o'clock
this old world is gonna rock
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

Well Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
And smote' the water with a two by four
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn
O Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn
Pharaoh's army get drownded
O Mary, don't you weep

Well, old mr.Satan got mad
Missed that soul that he thought he had
Pharaoh's army get drownded
O Mary, don't you weep

Brothers and sisters don't you cry
they'll be good times by and by
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary, don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary, don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army get drownded
O Mary, don't you weep

O Mary, don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary, don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army get drownded
O Mary, don't you weep

O Mary, don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary, don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army get drownded
O Mary, don't you weep

God gave Noah the rainbow sigh
Said, "No more water, but fire next time"
Prahaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't weep
