Capo 3

      Am                    G
There was a mother Mary in Dresden
     C                        Am
Her man did not come home one night
          C                 G              C         C
She fell asleep holding her pillow so tight
            Am                 G
Then in the morning, she had a phone call
         C                     Am
From the police, telling he was dead                     
            C             G                    C          C
He had been drunk and had drowned in the local river

Fmaj7 /A    G
Hey ho, the road is long
        C            Am
We all need to carry on
           Fmaj7 /A       G                    C    C
I guess we need a song to take us through the day

The same mother Mary in Dresden
She had a son aged 19
His name was Jim, and he was the pride of his mother
And one day he got a letter
From the army, saying: We need you in war
And there he went, a thousand times self-assured

Hey ho, the road is long
We all need to carry on
I guess we need a song to take us through the day

Six months passed and the mother
Had got a letter or two from her son
She had begun to prepare for his arrival
Then one day while she was doing laundry
An army car drove up on the lawn
And out stepped Jimís best friend
And Mary burst into tears

Hey ho, the road is long
We all need to carry on
I guess we need a song to take us through the day

Now Susanna was the only
Child that Mary had left
She was a breath-taking living beauty of 15
On the night of her first prom
She disappeared without a sound
After seven months they still hadnít heard a sound

Hey ho, the road is long
We all need to carry on
I guess we need a song to take us through the day

      Em          Am
Heart heavy as a stone
Em          Am
Mary was alone
     Em                Am
She went down on her knees
     Fmaj7 /A            G
And prayed to the Lord, Please
Em     Am
I am alone
Em                 Am
All my birds have flown
   Em            Am
And now I fly to you
          G              G
Donít you dare fail me, too!

Hey ho, the road is long
We all need to carry on
I guess we need a song to take us through the day

Hey ho, the road is long
To carry on you will need a song
To cheer you up and to remind you things will be fine
