C                        Am
They found mary bellows cuffed to the bed
Dm                        G
With a rag in her mouth and a bullet in her head
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                        Am
She’d grown up hungry, she’d grown up poor
Dm                     G
She left her home in arkansas
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                      Am
She wanted to see the deep blue sea
Dm                     G
She travelled across tennessee
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                   Am
She met a man along the way
Dm                      G
He introduced himself as richard slade
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                           Am
Poor mary thought that she might die
Dm                             G
When she saw the ocean for the first time
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                    Am
She checked into a cheap little place
Dm                        G
Richard slade carried in her old suitcase
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                     Am
I’m a good girl, sir, she said to him
Dm                      G
I couldn’t possibly permit you in
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                     Am
Slade tipped his hat and winked his eye
Dm                  G
And turned away without goodbye
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                      Am
She sat on her bed and thought of home
Dm                        G
With the sea breeze whistling all alone
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                         Am
In hope and loneliness she crossed the floor
Dm                      G
And undid the latch on the front door
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C                           Am
They found her the next day cuffed to the bed
Dm                         G
A rag in her mouth and a bullet in her head
F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
C               Am
So mothers keep your girls at home
Dm                     G 
Don’t let them journey all alone
C                       Am
Tell them this world is full of danger
Dm                        G
And to shun the company of strangers

F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows

F    G       C      G 
O poor mary bellows
