She lived on the curve of the road,
In an old, tar-paper shack 
On the south side of the town,
On the wrong side of the tracks 

 Sometimes on the way into town we'd say:
"Mama, can we stop and give her a ride?"
 Sometimes we did,
But her hands flew from her side
Wild eyed, crazy Mary

Down a long dirt road, past the Parson's place 
That old blue car we used to race
 Little country store 
With a sign tacked to the side
Said 'No L-O-I-T-E-are-I-N-G Allowed'

 Underneath that sign
 Always congregated quite a crowd 
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around 
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around 
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around 

One night thunder cracked,
 Mercy backed outside her window sill
 Dreamed I was flying high above the trees,
Over the hills  Looked down into the house of Mary
Bare bulb hung, newspaper-covered walls,
And Mary rising above it all

Next morning on the way into town
Saw some skid marks and followed them around 
Over the curve, through the fields,
Into the house of Mary

That what you fear the most,
 Could meet you halfway 
That what you fear the most,
 Could meet you halfway 

Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around 
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around 
Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around
