Don't know why I left Virgina
hangin' down that way
hand hold held and forgotten
halfway toward my new mistake

Willy told me all about it
said don't tie that ball and chain
heavy boots ain't made for walkin'
he was leavin' on the runaway train today

Mary, Mary in your garden
gentle as a breeze
well tell me Mary does your garden grow
Tell me baby where the water flow
Well tell me baby where the water flow easy

Close my eyes just for the moment
wish i'd never came
I guess somethin' got to me
a thorn diggin' in my side
it might be my greatest pain

And he said blood from a rolling stone
is worse luck than a black cat bone
Ain't got no plans to make
just looking for a new mistake

Till you turn around
and walk away
while all the precious gold
turns to gray, turns to gray

And he said blood from a rolling stone
is worse luck than a black cat bone
Ain't got no plans to make
just looking for a new mistake
