SONG    : The Kindness Of Strangers
AUTHOR  : Nick Cave
ALBUM   : Murder Ballads (1996)


do                      la-               re-
They found Mary Bellows cuffed to the bed 
With a rag in her mouth and a bullet in her head 
fa     sol  do      sol
O poor Mary Bellows

She'd grown up hungry she'd grown up poor 
She left her home in Arkansas
O poor Mary Bellows

She wanted to see the deep blue sea 
She travelled across Tennessee
O poor Mary Bellows

She met a man along the way 
He introduced himself as Richard Slade 
O poor Mary Bellows

Poor Mary thought that she might die 
When she saw the ocean for the first time 
O poor Mary Bellows

She checked into a cheap little place 
Richard Slade carried in her old suitcase 
O poor Mary Bellows

"I'm a good girl, sir," she said to him 
I couldn't possibly permit you in 
O poor Mary Bellows

Shade tipped his hat and winked his eye 
And turned away without goodbye 
O poor Mary Bellows

She sat on her bed and thought of home
With the sea breeze whistling all alone 
O poor Mary Bellows

In hope and loneliness she crossed the floor
And undid the latch on her front door
O poor Mary Bellows

They found her the next day cuffed to the bed
A rag in her mouth and a bullet in her head
O poor Mary Bellows

So mothers keep your girls at home
Don't let them journey out alone
Tell them this world is full of danger
And to shun the company of strangers
O poor Mary Bellows
O poor Mary Bellows
