"The Little Grave In Georgia" as written by Charlie Louvin and Trad....
I'm always light in my heart and
Not a care in this world have I
I know that I'm loved by a deity
I could not forget if I tried
Now she sleeps in a little town of Marietta
Where the little birds sing in the trees
Her little grave's all covered in ivy
While her loved ones are waiting for me

Little Mary was just 14
She's as pretty as a queen
Her hair was dark and curly
Not a sweeter child ever was seen
Now she sleeps in a little town of Marietta
While the little bird sings in the trees
Her little grave's all covered in ivy
While loved ones are waiting for me

That day she left her mother
That day I'll never forget
That day she left for the bus stop
Will imagine I'll see her yet
Now she sleeps in a little town of Marietta
Where the little birds sing in the trees
Her little grave's all covered in ivy
While her loved ones are waiting for me

Mary Fagen is now in heaven
She's there with the Lord I'm sure
We all praise God to meet her
Where there'll be no murder no more
Now she sleeps in a little town of Marietta
Where the little birds sing in the trees
Her little grave's all covered in ivy
While loved ones are waiting for me
While loved ones are waiting for me
