Mother Mary

Album: Stop Drop And Roll (2008)
  • Do you want to elope tonight
    Getting lost in the shadows
    All dressed up like a switchblade knife
    Let's hang in love from the gallows

    Or we can take a walk around the lake
    There's a garden in the park there
    Under the stars next to the fireside

    Anywhere is better than here

    [Chorus]
    Oh Mother Mary, take my hand
    I'll be a saint, I'll be your man
    I'll do most anything, 'cause I don't care
    Oh Mother Mary, take my hand.

    Take a ride on the midnight train
    We'll fall asleep at the station
    Too much wine, driving me insane
    And then we'll miss our destination

    Oh well, too bad, who cares, it's all right.
    As long as we will stick together
    In hell we'll rain a rose of sunshine
    We'll watch it rise and shine forever

    [Chorus] Writer/s: BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, FRANK E., III WRIGHT, FRANK EDWIN WRIGHT III, MICHAEL PRITCHARD, MIKE DIRNT, MIKE RYAN PRITCHARD, TRE COOL

  • Reya from Reynoldsburg, OhHeard this in a video, and was very suprised, because I wasn't expecting FHT to sound like this. I like the song a lot, and the members of the band.
