        She lived on a curve of the road
        in an old tar paper shack
        on the south side of the town
        on the wrong side of the tracks

        Sometimes on the way into town
        we'd say, "Mama, can we stop and give her a ride"
        sometimes we did
        but she shocked her and hold hands flew from her side

        Wild eyed, Crazy Mary

        Well down a long dirt road
        past the parson's place
        your old blue car
        we used to race

        The little country store
        with a sign tagged to the side

        Said, "No L-O-I-T-E-R-I-N-G, A, allowed"

        Underneath that sign always congregated
        quite A crowd

        Take a bottle, drink it down
        pass it, hey, pass it all around
        Take a bottle, drink it down
        pass it, pass it all around
        Take a bottle, drink it down
        pass it all around, pass it A, pass it A, around

        One night thunder cracked
        Mercy backed outside my windowsill

        Dreamed I was flying high above the trees and over the hills
        looked down into the house of Mary

        Terrible ponderer
        newspaper covered walls
        and Mary rising up above it all

        Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

        oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh

        Next morning on the way into town
        we saw some skid marks and followed them around
        over the curb
        through the fields into the house of Mary

        That what you fear the most
        could meet you half way
        that what you fear the most
        could meet you half way, yeah

        Take a bottle, drink it down
        pass it A, around
        take a bottle, drink it down
        pass it A, around
        Take a bottle, drink it, drink it down
        pass it A, around, pass it A, pass it A, around

        Around, 'round
        pass it all around, drink it down
