Alan Jackson – Mary lyrics

Mary, sweet wife

How did you end up in my life

Beautiful girl, out of all of this world

You chose me to lay down with at night

Colors of spring are vivid and green

Since I looked so deep in your eyes

All of a sudden, I’m filled with emotion

With feelings I used to deny

Mary, sweet wife

How did you end up in my life

Beautiful girl, out of all of this world

You chose me to lay down with at night

You’ve given me purpose and reason to worship

Someone much stronger than me

Gentle and tender, and always remember

The little things a man really needs

Mary, sweet wife

How did you end up in my life

Beautiful girl, out of all of this world

You chose me to lay down with at night

As time moves along, I know we’ll be loyal

To each other till they lay me down

And when even then, I’ll take your memory with me

To hold me when you’re not around

Mary, sweet wife

How did you end up in my life

Beautiful girl, out of all of this world

You chose me to lay down with at night
