Click Play Speed Slow 1/4=100 Medium 1/4=135 Fast 1/4=200

This is a song that everyone seems to know, but they don't know from where, and it appears in very few song books.
Oh Mary, don't you weep don't you mourn
Oh Mary, don't you weep don't you mourn

Refrain

Pharoah's army got drownded
Oh mary don't you weep

Verses

If I could I surely would
stand on the rock where Moses stood.

Mary worr three links of chain
every link was Jesus' name.

One of these nights about 12 o clock
this old worlds going to reel and rock.

God told Moses what to do
To lead the Hebrew children through

Moses stood on the red sea shore
smotin' the water witha two by four

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

Mary wore three links of chain
Every link was freedoms name

The very moment I thought I was lost
The dungeon shook and the chains fell off
I may be right and I may be wrong
I know you're gonna miss me when I am gone
