"Mary Don't You Weep" as written by Mel Tillis and Marijohn Wilkin....
Oh Mary don't you weep for me oh Mary just await for me
The war's gonna soon be over oh Mary don't you weep

Jimmy sent a letter to his bride back home for three long years he's been gone
He left her crying on her wedding day
And went to fight the battle of the Blue and Gray
Oh Mary don't you weep for me

Mary's young heart was filled with joy when she got the letter from her soldier boy
His words of love made her heart beat fast but little did she know it would be the last
Oh Mary don't you weep for me

On that same day Atlanta burned down her soldier boy he fell to the ground
Now Mary sits alone by the candle light and reads his letter over every night
Oh Mary don't you weep for me
Oh Mary don't you weep for me
Oh Mary don't you weep oh Mary don't you weep oh Mary don't you weep
