Well if I could I surely would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't you weep
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't you weep

Well Mary wore 3 links of chain
On every link was Jesus' name
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't you weep
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep

Well one of theses nights bout 12 o'clock
This old world is gonna rock
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep

Well Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
And smote' the water with a two by four
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep

O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep

Well old Mr. Satan he got mad
Missed that soul that he thought he had
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

Brothers and sisters don't you cry
They'll be good times by and by
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep

O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't you weep

God gave Noah the rainbow sign
Said, "No more water but fire next time"
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep

O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep

O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drowned
O Mary don't
