1. Concrete Mary

From the recording Concrete Mary

 A true story about a "Mother Mary" statue found headless in Nashville. 


Me and sister Penny, found her laying in the weeds
While visiting a friend in Nashville Tn.
Her frozen headless body was all covered up with snow
How it really happened nobody really knows
Penny sat there with her as I walked up to the house
I was knocking on the door when I heard Penny shout
I found her Head!
She'll be alright
I'll pick her up and sit her there underneath the light
She pulled that Concrete body from that frozen flower bed
And went back in to rescue Mother Mary's Head
My friend came out apologized
Said he had to go
He was playing on the road back then
With George the Possum Jones
He told sister Penny if she could fix her up
To put her broken pieces in the back of my red truck
So we took Mother Mary back to good ole Missouri
Her Body in the bed and her head in the front seat
And we fixed her head, It wasn't hard
Put a purple ribbon round her neck and sat her up in the yard 
She's fallen quite a few times
Sister Penny said
But so far Mother Mary, hasn't lost her head
So far Mother Mary, hasn't lost her head
