Lyrics to Mary Dont You Weep Traditional

Lyrics to Mary Don't You Weep - Traditional Mary Don't You Weep - Traditional

Chorus:
Oh Mary don't you weep, don't you moan (or mourn),
Oh Mary don't you weep, don't you moan,
Pharaoh's Army got drownded,
Oh Mary don't you weep.

Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
Smotin' the water with a two by four,
(at the end of every verse) Pharaoh's Army got drownded,
Oh Mary don't you weep.

The Lord told Moses what to do
To lead those Hebrew children through,

(Mississippi John Hurt adds the following verse:)
Sinners, don't come by the goin' home
No need to come when the train done gone,

God gave Noah the rainbow sign
No more water, but the fire next time,

Mary wore three links of chain
Every link was in freedom's name,

When I get to Heaven, gonna sing & shout
Nobody up there to put me out!

One of these mornings, it won't be long
You're gonna call my name but I'll be gone,

One of these days, about 12 o'clock
This old world's gonna reel & rock.

One of these days, in the middle of the night
People gonna rise up and set things right.

It was Moses, first proved the notion:
The world is safer with the army in the ocean.

(Georgia Field Hands version)

I done told you once, I done told you twice,
Settled in hell if you shoot the dice,

God made man and He made him out of clay,
Put him on earth but not to stay.

I done told you once, done told you twice,
Can't get to heaven with a sweetheart and a wife,
