Well if I could I surely would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t you weep

O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t you weep

Well Mary wore three links and chains
On every link was Jesus’ name
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t you weep

O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t weep
Go!

Go!

Well one of these nights bout 12 o’clock
This old world is gonna rock
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t you weep

Well Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
Smote’ the water with a two by four
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t you weep

Alright!

(O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn)
(O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn)
(Pharaoh’s army got drownded)
(O Mary don’t you weep)

Well old Mr. Satan he got mad
Missed that soul that he thought he had
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t you weep

Brothers and sisters don’t you cry
There’ll be good times by and by
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t weep

Well oh Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t you weep

Solo, try it out!
(O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn)
(O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn)
(Pharaoh’s army got drownded)
(O Mary don’t weep)
Hey!

Drums!

God gave Noah the rainbow sign
“No more water but fire next time”
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t you weep

O Mary don’t you weep, don’t (you) mourn
O Mary don’t you weep, don’t (you) mourn
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t weep

O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
O Mary don’t weep

Everybody!
(O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn)
(O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn)
(Pharaoh’s army got drownded)
(O Mary don’t weep)

O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn
Pharaoh’s army got drownded
Oooooooh, Mary don’t yoooooou

(O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn)
(O Mary don’t you weep, don’t mourn)
(Pharaoh’s army got drownded)
(O Mary don’t weep)
