Good Night Mary

lyrics

From her hospital bed she asked me
"Is everything alright?
How's your mama and your sister?"
Oh, her little enquiries
They last and last
And I barely get a chance
To tell her I'm there just for her
Before she closes her eyes

Good night Mary
It's okay
Sleep tight Mary
You're on your way to that safe place
You've been dreaming of all day

Can't imagine what it must be like
To loose everything
To be taken from your home
Never to return
And she took with such grace
Always a smile and always those cares
For everyone she knew
Until one day
The phone call came that Mary passed away

Good night Mary
It's okay
Sleep tight Mary
You're on your way
To that save place you've been dreaming of
All day

(solo)

Good night Mary
It's okay
Sleep tight Mary
You're on your way to that safe place
You've been dreaming of
Reunited with the one you love
And there's no need to worry anymore

From her hospital bed she asked me
Is everything alright
