Mary Queen of Arkansas  Bruce Springsteen

Song: Mary Queen of Arkansas
Tabbed by:

[D]Mary queen of Arkansas[G], it's not [Bm]too early for d[D]reamin'
The sky is grown with cloud seed sown a[G]nd a bastard's love c[B]an be redeeming[D]
[G]Mary, my queen, your soft h[A]ulk is reviving[D]
[Em]No, you're not too late to desec[G]rate, the servants are [D]just rising
Well I'm just a lonely acrobat, the live wire is my trade
I've been a shine boy for your acid brat and a wharf rat of your state
Mary, my queen, your blows for freedom are missing
You'D not man enough for me to hate or woman enough for kissing
[G]The big top is for dreamers, [Bm]we can take the circus all the way to the border[D]
And the gallows [Bm]wait for martyrs whose papers are in order[G] [D]
But I[G] was not born to live to die and y[A]ou were not born for[D] queenin'
It's not [G]too late to infiltr[A]ate, the servants are [D]just leavin'
Mary queen of Arkansas, your white skin is deceivin'
You wake and wait to lie in bait and you almost got me believin'
But on your bed Mary I can see the shadow of a noose
I don't understand how you can hold ma so tight and love me so *** loose
But I know a place where we can go, Mary
Where I can get a good job and start all over again clean
I got contacts deep in Mexico where the servants have been seen
