Mary Carol

Threatening sky

Mary Carol

Closed off in her tomb

Reading from her Bible

In an eight-by-ten foot room

In an eight-by-ten foot room.

Said she shot him

Shot him in their room

Won’t deny it

Sent him to his doom

To his eternal doom.

Three young daughters

Two innocents at school

Fine young preacher

Who’s gonna play the fool?

Who’s gonna play the fool?

Mary Carol

Closed off in her room

Won’t deny it

What will the police do?

What will the police do?
