Bringing Mary Home

Country Gentlemen sing the tune. A nice song, but wouldn't hit my campfire list.

I was driving down a lonely road a dark and stormy night
When a little girl by the roadside showed up in my headlights
I stopped and she got in the back and in a shakey 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 in the back seat all alone
I never will forget the night I took Mary home
I pulled into the griveway 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 it was bare
I looked all around the car but Mary wasn't there
A light shone from the porch someone opened the door
As I walked toward the house I wondered more and more
What happened to the little girl so frightened and forlorn
Could I have just been dreaming bringing Mary home?
I walked up to the lady who was standing in the door
And asked about the little girl that I was looking for
She gently smiled and with her hand she brushed a tear away
And 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 still miss her so
Thank you for your troubles and the kindness you have shown
You're the thirteenth one who's been here bringing Mary home
