Oh, this man, all alone
He’s not happy when you’re gone
All this time, his Mother Mary’s in love with you
For a minute there, he thought it was different
The secondary son
He counts his prayers, and he thinks they would listen
He realized she was done

I can’t think this through
The son is gone and there’s only you
It’s those Mother Mary blues

Hold his hand, try to listen
It can’t make him less of a man
Oh, you can try, nothing is sinking
He’ll try to fold when he can

I can’t think this through
The son is gone and there’s only you
It’s those Mother Mary blues

With second thoughts, he’s his mother’s son
He’s got tears inside his throat
With second thoughts, he’s his mother’s son
He’s got tears inside his throat
With second thoughts, he’s his mother’s son
He’s got tears inside his throat

I can’t think this through
The son is gone and there’s only you
It’s those Mother Mary blues
I can’t think this through
The son is gone and there’s only you
It’s those Mother Mary blues
