Oh, Mary, don't you weep for me Oh, Mary, just you wait for me The war's gonna soon be over Oh, Mary, don't you weep Mary's young heart was filled with joy When she got the letter from her soldier boy His words of love made her heart beat fast But little did she know it would be the last Oh, Mary, don't you weep for me Oh, Mary, just you wait for me The battle will soon be over Oh, Mary, don't you weep On that same day Atlanta burned down Her soldier boy, he fell to the ground Now Mary sits alone by the candlelight And reads his letter over ev'ry night Oh, Mary, don't you weep for me Oh, Mary, just you wait for me The war's gonna soon be over Oh, Mary, don't you weep Oh, Mary, don't you weep for me Oh, Mary, just you wait for me The battle's gonna soon be over Oh, Mary, don't you weep Oh, Mary, don't you weep [FADE] Oh, Mary, don't you weep
