Where are you now
That my sweet Mary done died
Alone, alone, alone  Somewhere you say
 Where my sweet Mary
Held her grave 
In her arms
Like an infant odyssey

Well you can
Hush my little darlin? 
Don't you cry?
Hush beneath the dreams 
We did roam
 Cause I do believe 
It will be
Just like the color when
The purple sings
When I will know 
For sure?.

She was held to the blade 
Laid down my sweet Mary dear
She laid down upon
The cold winter?s floor 
And I remember what she said
When she saw the snow turn
To red
She said lord let me be the lord
Let me be the lord

Well you can
Hush my little darlin?
Don't you cry
Hush beneath the dreams 
We did roam

 Cause I do believe it will be
Just like the color when 
The purple sings
When yes this angel 
Will cover us?.
