Oh, Sweet Mary

Janis Joplin

Yeah!

Oh, sweet Mary, child of confusion, she runs the hills to cry
Past the willows or an illusion, Lord tell me the reason why.
Tell me why - Why is it all so hard ?
Breathing in the air - Breathin' in the air
Anyone to care.
Ohhh! Yeah!

Alright! Yeah!

Why ? - Why ? - Why ?

Oh, sweet Mary, in our story, have we nothing left to give ?
But don't we all know, babe if we're pressed to, that that's the way we live.
Tell me why - Why is it all so hard ?
Breathing in the air - Breathin' in the air
Anyone to care.
Ohhh! Yeah!

Hut'na - Hut'na - Hut'na - Hut'na - Hut'na - Hut'na - Hut'a - Hut'a - Hut'a - Hut'a - Hut'a - Hut'a
Oh, Yeah! ¥Ç¥

As recorded at Columbia Studio D (Hollywood) on 29 May 1968 and first released on the vinyl album "Cheap Thrills" (track 2 side 2) Columbia 9700.
