Sutherland Brothers Backing Tracks – Lying In The Arms Of Mary

 

Lyrics

The lights shine down the valley
The wind blows up the alley
Oh how I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary
She took the pains of boyhood
And turned them into feel good
Oh how I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary
Mary was the girl who taught me all I had
To know, she put me right on my first mistake
Summer wasn’t gone when I’d learned all she had
To show, she really gave all a boy could take
So now when I feel lonely
Still looking for the one and only
That’s when I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary …..
