Oh, Mary, Don't You Weep


Capo 3rd fret

     Em           B7         
Well if I could I surely would
                        Em        
Stand on the rock where Moses stood
Am               Em      
Pharaohs army got drownded
B7               Em 
Oh Mary dont you weep


Em                  B7                      
Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn
                   Em                      
Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn
Am                 Em      
Pharaoh's army got drownded?
B7                 Em 
Oh, Mary, don't you weep


      Em             B7           
Well, Mary wore three links of chain
                 Em         
On every link was jesus name
Am                 Em       
Pharaoh's army got drownded?
B7                 Em 
Oh, Mary, don't you weep


Chorus 


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


Instrumental Break


Well, one of these nights 'bout twelve o'clock,
This old world is gonna rock
Pharaoh's army got drownded?
Oh, Mary, don't you weep


Well Moses stood on the red sea shore
Smote the water with a two by four
Pharoah's army got drownded
Oh Mary don't you weep


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


Well old mister Satan he got mad
Missed that soul that he thought he had
Didn't Pharaoh's army get drownded?
Oh, Mary, don't you weep


Brothers and sisters don't you cry
There'll be good times bye and bye
Didn't Pharaoh's army get drownded?
Oh, Mary, don't you weep


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


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