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
