Petite Marie (Remastered)
They came west to a harsh land, in order to survive They all took native women, and they call them country wives Oh those girls could feed and clothe them, and show them where to go They kept their women here, but their ladies stayed at home Petite Marie, little Marie, petite Marie, little Marie And when the trips were over, they left them here alone No hunters for their babies, and we find their tiny bones In the lonely shallow graves, along the river shore Rejected by their people, abandoned white man's whores Country wives, mistresses of a hard and wild land Country wives, no promises or ring upon their hand But the work fell on their shoulders And it's their names we should read. in the history books that tell us, who discovered this country And she waited by the river, cause he said he would return And she tried to feed her children, untill the season turned And the fort upon the hill, wouldn't help to save their lives And they left her on the outside, with the other country wives
