Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse]
G C GShe'd slip away each day with the dimming light
G C GAnd with the sweetest smile she'd kiss the child goodnight
C GAt the mill she'd work her fingers till they were raw
Em D GFor the sake of her son and the daddy he never saw
[Chorus]
C GMary danced with soldiers
EmShe stepped a light quadrille
C GShawl across her shoulders
Em C GTo keep away the chill, to keep away the chill
[Verse]
G C GIt was a rebel boy who brought her joy they say
G C GThough the years had passed the memories stood fast each day
C GBefore a bullet crushed the life of their romance
Em D GHe gave her a shawl and a parasol from France
[Chorus]
C GMary danced with soldiers
EmShe stepped a light quadrille
C GShawl across her shoulders
Em C GTo keep away the chill, to keep away the chill
[Verse]
G C GThey came around to the tavern in town that night
G C GAnd with silent cries Mary never tried to fight
C GThey cut her hair and left her body torn
Em D GHer spirit slipped away before the dawn
[Chorus]
C GMary danced with soldiers
EmBut now her body's still
C GShawl across her shoulders
C GTo keep away the chill
[Chorus]
C GMary danced with soldiers
EmShe stepped a light quadrille
C GShawl across her shoulders
Em C GTo keep away the chill, to keep away the chill
