She's got her ticket & she's waitin' at the station
She's got to get away as far as she can
Her problems will arise as sure as the sun does shine
She's got to get used to living on the lam


Now Mary's out the door with a loaded .44 in her hand
Shootin' down the law that shot down her dear departed man


When I last saw her she was lookin' troubled
She said this is the 90's I'm gonna be alright
She took the Greyhound into Salinas
I got a letter then she dropped out of sight


Now Mary's out the door with a loaded .44 in her hand
Shootin' down the law that shot down her dear departed man


Shrouded in anger
Encompassed by pain
He was your best friend & you'll never see him again
Now Mary's out the door with a loaded .44 in her hand
Shootin' down the law that shot down her dear departed man

    General CommentThe song is pretty self-explanatory. Some cops shot her husband/partner. She's out for revenge and then she's on the lam (running from the law for the kids who don't know).

    General CommentIts about a woman who shot a cop who shot her man in campbell or some other south bay city. Salinas refers to a city about 30 miles south of Campbell.

    General CommentBeing from Ohio I always thought this song was cool because there are two cities here within probably 10-12 miles of each other called Celina and St. Marys, both on the Grand Lake.
