"Mary Mac (Traditional Song)" as written by and Carter Gravatt Barry Thomas Privett....
There's a neat little lass
And her name is Mary Mac
Make no mistake,
She's the girl I'm gonna track
Lot of other fellas
Want to get up on her back
But I'm thinking that they'll
Have to get up early

Chorus:
Mary Mac's mother's making Mary Mac marry me
My mother's making me marry Mary Mac
Well I'm going to marry Mary
For when Mary's taking care of me
We'll all be feeling merry when I marry Mary Mac
KAIYUT-LIT-L-LOT-LIT-L-LOTL-LEETLE-UM

This wee little lass
She has a lot of class
She has a lot of brass
And her mother thinks I'm gas
I think she's an ass
To let the matter pass
But my mother thinks
She suits me rather fairly

    General CommentA fantastic cover of Great Big Sea's Mari Mac, Carbon Leaf has (naturally) made it their own through Barry's style on the mic and Jordan, Scott, Terry and Carter all rocking out on their respective instruments.

    General CommentIt's not a cover from Great Big Sea.. this is a traditional song... Great Big Sea does a good version of it too, but this version is by far better.
