BEN HARPER lyrics : "mary"

( Patty Griffin Cover )




Mary


You're covered in roses

You're covered in ashes


You're covered in rain


You're covered in babies

You're covered in slashes


You're covered in wilderness


You're covered in stains




You cast aside the sheet


You cast aside the shroud

Of another man, who serves the world proud


You greet another son and you lose another one


On some sunny day and always you stay

Mary





Jesus said Mother I couldn't stay another day longer

He flies right by and leaves a kiss upon her face


While the angels were singin' his praises in a blaze of glory


Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place




Oh Mary


You move behind me

You leave you fingerprints everywhere


Everytime the snow drifts


Every way the sand shifts

Even when the night lifts, you're always there





You cast aside the sheet

You cast aside the shroud


Of another man, who serves the world proud






You greet another son and you lose another one

On some sunny day and always you stay


Mary




Jesus said Mother I couldn't stay another day longer

He flies right by and leaves a kiss upon her face


While the angels were singin' his praises in a blaze of glory

Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place




Oh Mary

You're covered in roses


You're covered in ruins

You're covered in secrets


Your'e covered in treetops

You're covered in birds

Who can sing a million songs without any words




You cast aside the sheet

You cast aside the shroud

Of another man, who serves the world proud


You greet another son and you lose another one

On some sunny day and always you stay

Always you stay


Mary

Na, na, na...

Oh Mary
