MARY IN THE EVENING

 

One evening I was walking in the hills above the town

When I met a lovely maiden as she came tripping down.

 

Refrain:

Mary in the evening, so sweet she came to me,

I turned around and took her hand to keep her company.

 

‘Twas on a summer’s morning that she came to my side

And I vowed I’d love and cherish her and she would be my bride.

 

Refrain:

Mary in the evening, so sweet she came to me,

I turned around and took her hand to keep her company.

 

It was on a winter’s morning when she passed away

And I’ve missed that lovely girl since then, every night and day.

 

Refrain:

Mary in the evening, so sweet she came to me,

I turned around and took her hand to keep her company.

 

No matter what I do or say I won’t forget the past

My love for you my darling girl, it’s going to grow and last.

 

Refrain:

Mary in the evening, so sweet she came to me,

I turned around and took her hand to keep her company.

 

Now the evening light is failing, she walks beside me still

And I bless the day I met her first a tripping down the hill.

 

Refrain:

Mary in the evening, so sweet she came to me,

I turned around and took her hand to keep her company.
