lyrics

Mary lived in an old boxcar by the tracks
pretty good hustler
made her bread on the blackjack
spent her nights out shootin dice in the parlor
‘til a black wind
blew her old man in from Gilmer
poor Mary

he rolled into town
looked around for his woman
spent the last seven years in a West Virginia prison
killed three men in a knife fight
out behind the car shop
now he’s huntin’ down the lady
who turned him over to the cops
poor Mary

he found her in the trainyard
drinking with some fellas from the depot
a cold wind blew through the trees
and an old dog moaned
a piece of her red dress and a shoe
was all that they found
now her spirit’s gone
haunting those lonely grounds
poor Mary
