"Arms Of Mary" as written by and Iain George Sutherland....
The lights shine down the valley
The wind blows up the alley
Oh how I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary

She took the pains of boyhood
And turned them into feel good
Oh how I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary

Mary was the girl who taught me all I had
To know, she put me right on my first mistake
Summer wasn't gone when I'd learned all she had
To show, she really gave all a boy could take

So now when I feel lonely
Still looking for the one and only
That's when I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary

Mary was the girl who taught me all I had
To know, she put me right on my first mistake
Summer wasn't gone when I'd learned all she had to show
She really gave all a boy could take

The lights shine down the valley
The wind blows up the alley
Oh how I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary

    General CommentMary was a prostitute who tried to 'help' boys who lost the way. She was actualy a very good person with a beautiful heart. Then one day when she was sitting at a lake when a big fat idiotic policeman raped her and then killed her because being a prostitute was 'filthy' and wrong. No one ever found out what hapen to her cause the police tried to protect the cop and no one ever told the media. So people just thought that Mary ran away. Then one day like 10 years later one of her friends found out what happend.
