Video #1: Here is a video of me playing the country ballad "Bringing Mary Home."
"Bringing Mary Home" was written by John Duffy, Chaw Mank, and Joe Kingston. It was recorded by Red Sovine and also The Country Gentlemen.
Bringing Mary Home I was driving down a lonely road on a dark and stormy night When a little girl by the road side showed up in my head lights 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 cause her face was deathly white She sat so pale and quiet there in the back seat all alone I never will forget that night I took Mary home 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 just could not believe my eyes the back seat was bare I looked all around the car but Mary wasn't there A small light shown from the porch a woman opened up the door I asked about the little girl that I was looking for Then the 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 in a wreck just down the road Our darling Mary lost her life and we miss her so So thank you for your trouble and the kindness you have shown You're the thirteenth one who's been here bringing Mary home You're the thirteenth one who's been here bringing Mary home
