Mary Ann Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords By Seamus Moore.

[G]It's just a year ago today I (C) married Mary (G) Ann
And (C) here I am at (G) 35 an (D) auld and feeble (G) man.
Sure she makes me life a misery me (C) nerves are gone to (G) bits,
And I'm (C) going round in (G) circles like a (D) dog that has the (G) fits

For she (C) nags me in the (G) morning, she (C) nags me all the (G) day,
She (C) criticizes (G) all I do and (D) everything I (G) say,
The (C) other night we (G) had a fight she (C )hit me with the (G) pan
Oh the (C) curse o’ Blazes (G) on the day I (D) married Mary (G) Ann

She wakes me in the morning and she (C) says get out of (G) bed,
You (C) lazy ugly (G) so and so you (D) look like something (G) dead
Get out of bed and go to work and (C) get a job some-(G)-how,
For I (C) never had to (G) work before and (D) I'm not starting (G) now.

I (C) draw the home as-(G)-sistance and al-(C)-though the times are (G) dear
It (C) keeps me in to-(G)-bacco and a (D) few old pints of (G) beer
And (C) if Mary Ann wants (G) money to (C) buy herself a (G) dress,
She (C) can bloody well go (G) out and start to (D) work for it her-(G)-self.
 
G – G – C - G
And just to aggravate her sure I (C) stay in bed all (G) day
I (C) rise up in the (G) evening time to (D) make meself some (G) tae,
And then I'll wander down the town to (C) get meself a (G) jar,
And it's (C) often after (G) closing time be-(D)-fore I leave the (G) bar.

And (C) when I stagger (G) home again she's (C) waiting for me (G) there,
With (C) fire raging (G) in her eyes and (D) curlers in her (G) hair,
And (C) in her hand a (G) poker sure it (C) would frighten any (G) man
Oh the (C) greatest curse that (G) ever lived was (D) that auld Mary (G) Ann.

She's over 6 foot tall me boys and her (D) weight is 20 (G) stone,
And(C) when we have a (G) fight sure I can (D) barely hold me (G) own,
She's as strong as any black smith sure she (D) should have been a (G) man
For you'd (C) need police pro-(G)-tection for to (D) live with Mary (G) Ann

She (C) says I'm good for (G) nothing either (C) in or out of (G) bed,
She (C) says I'm not a (G) man at all and (D) wishes I was (G) dead,
She (C) tells me I'm a (G) drunken scut, I (C) think I'll have to (G) leave.
Sure (C) if this goes on (G) much longer sure (D) I'll soon be in my (G) grave.

I'll just head off to London boys and (C) leave her to her-(G)-self,
It (C) means I'll have to (G) leave me home but (D) sure that can't be (G) helped,
For you might as well be living with the (C) devil and his (G) clan
As to (C) try and share the (G) same abode with (D) that auld Mary (G) Ann.

And (C) now me boys take (G) warning stay (C) single when you (G) may
For (C) if you wed you'll (G) be a slave un-(D)-til your dying (G) day,
That (C) angle with the (G) lovely face that (C) smiles so warm and (G) grand,
Sure she’s(C) probably a (G) devil too like (D) my auld Mary (G) Ann.
Oh, she’s (C) probably a (G) devil too like (D) my auld Mary (G) Ann.
 

It's just a year ago today I married Mary Ann
And here I am at 35 an auld and feeble man.
Sure she makes me life a misery me nerves are gone to bits,
And I'm going round in circles like a dog that has the fitz

For she nags me in the morning, she nags me all the day,
She criticizez all I do and everything I say,
The other night we had a fight she hit me with the pan
Oh the curse O' Blazes on the day I married Mary Ann

She wakes me in the morning and she says get out of bed,
You lazy ugly so and so you look like something dead
Get out of bed and go to work and get a job somehow,
For I never had to work before and I'm not starting now.

I draw the home assistance and although the times are dear
It keeps me in tobacco and a few old pints of beer
And if Mary Ann wants money to buy herself a dress,
She can bloody well go out and work for it herself.

And just to aggrivate her sure I stay in bed all day
I rise up in the evening time to make meself some tay,
And then I'll wonder down the town to get meself a jar,
And it's often after closing time before I leave the bar.

And when I stagger home again she's waiting for me there,
With fire raging in her eyes and curlers in her hair,
And in her hand a poker sure it would frighten any man
Oh the greatest curse that ever lived was that auld Mary Ann.

She's over 6 foot tall me boys and her weight is 20 stone,
And when we have a fight sure I can bearly hold me own,
She's as strong as any black smith sure she should have been a man
For you'd need police protection for to live with Mary Ann

She says I'm good for nothing either in or out of bed,
She says I'm not a man at all and wishes I was dead,
She tells me that I'm a drunken skut, I think I'll have to leave.
Sure if this goes on much longer sure I'll soon be in my grave.

I'll just head off to London boys and leave her to herself,
It means I'll have to leave me home but sure that can't be helped,
Sure you might as well be living with the divel and his clan
As to try and share the same abode with that auld Mary Ann.

And now me boys take warning stay single when you may
For if you wed you'll be a slave until your dying day,
That angle with the lovely face that smiles so warm and grand,
Sure she's probibly a divil too like my auld Mary Ann.
