(A)Mary you're covered in (D)roses, you're covered in (A)ashes
You're covered in(E)rain
You're covered in (A)babies, you're covered in (D)slashes
You're covered in (A)wilderness, you're covered in (E)stains
You cast a-(A)side the sheet, you cast a-(D)side the shroud
Of an-(A)other man, who served the world (E)proud
You greet a-(A)nother son, you lose an-(D)other one
On some (A)sunny day and always (E)stay, Mary

(D)Jesus says mother I (E)couldn't stay another day (A)longer
(D)Flys right by me and (E)leaves a kiss upon her (A)face
While the (D)angels are singin' his (E)praises in a blaze of (A)glory
Mary stays be-(f#7)hind and starts (B)cleaning up the (D)place   (E)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/patty_griffin/mary_crd.html ]
(A)Mary she moves be-(D)hind me

Mary stays be-(f#7)hind and starts (B)cleaning up the (D)place      (E)

(A)Mary you're covered in (D)roses, you're covered in (A)ruin
You're covered in (E)secrets
Your'e covered in (A)treetops, you're covered in (D)birds
Who can sing a million (A)songs without any (E)words

Of an-(A)other man, who served the world (E)proud
You greet another (A)son, you lose another (D)one
On some sunny (A)day and always you(E)stay
Mary, Mary, Mary
