Mary of the Wild Moor  Johnny Cash

Original in A, so when played in G: Capo 2
Intro: G
It was [G]on one [D]cold winter [G]night
When the [G]wind blew a[A7]cross the wild [D7]moor
When [G]Mary came [D]wandering [G]home with her [C]child
Till she [G]came to her [D7]own father's [G]door
"[G]Father, dear [D]father," she [G]cried
"Come [G]down and [A7]open the [D7]door
Or the [G]child in my [D]arms will [G]perish and [C]die
From the [G]winds that blow a[D7]cross the wild [G]moor"
But her [G]father was [D]deaf to her [G]cry
Not a [G]sound of a [A7]voice did he [D7]hear
So the [G]watchdog did [D]howl and the [G]village bells [C]tolled
And the [G]wind blew a[D7]cross the wild [G]moor
[G] [D] [G] [C] [G] [D7] [G]  
Oh, [G]how the old [D]man must have [G]felt
When he [G]came to the [A7]door the next [D7]morn'
And he [G]found Mary [D]dead but the [G]child still a[C]live
Closely [G]grasping its [D7]dead mother's [G]arms
In [G]grief the old [D]man passed a[G]way
And the [G]child to its [A7]mother went [D7]soon
And [G]no one, they [D]say, lives [G]there to this [C]day
And the [G]cottage to [D7]ruin has [G]gone
[G] [D] [G] [C] [G] [D7] [G]  
But the [G]villagers [D]point out the [G]spot
Where the [G]willows grew [A7]over the [D7]door
Saying, "[G]There Mary [D]died, once the [G]gay village [C]bride
From the [G]wind that blew a[D7]cross the wild [G]moor"
[G] [D] [G] [C] [G] [D7] [G]
