    "Bringing Mary Home" Lyrics

    Daniel O'Donnell

    I was driving down a lonely road
    On a dark and stormy night
    When a little girl by the roadside
    Showed up in my headlights.

    I stopped and she got in the back
    And in a shaky tone
    She said: my name is Mary
    Please won't you take me home?

    She must have been so frightened
    All alone there in the night

    There was something strange about her
    Her face was deathly white.

    She sat so pale and quiet
    In the back seat all alone
    I never will forget that night
    I took Mary home.

    --- Instrumental ---

    I pulled into the driveway
    Where she told me to go
    Got out to help her from the car
    And opened up the door.

    But I could not believe my eyes
    The back seat was bare
    And I looked all around this car

    But Mary wasn't there,

    A light shone from the porch
    Someone opened up the door
    I asked about the little girl
    That I was looking for.

    Then a lady gently smiled
    And brushed a tear away
    She said: It sure was nice of you
    To go out of your way.

    But thirteen years ago today
    A wreck just down the road
    Our darling Mary lost her life
    And we miss her so.

    But thank you for your trouble
    And the kindness you have shone
    You're the thirteenth one who's been here
    Bringing Mary home...
