Mary Donnel (Captain Tractor)

Voices calling me home where I belong And I'm longing to make myself that strong And I come to you every night in my head And I left home so long ago and it's time to make amends When I left you I was just a child Now I need you but I've gone five hundred miles And I'll find a way back into your arms But I've been gone for far too long to ever win your charms Hey, I'm going away from the footlights here that blind me Hey, what's that you say I'm leaving you behind me Well my name is Mary Donnel and I'm twenty-one today I've got my walking papers so there's nothing you can say I'm sick of this old one way town and farms and families too I'm off to find a better life and I don't need you Hey, I'm going away from the footlights here that blind me Hey, what's that you say I'm leaving you behind me Now I'm Mary from the south side and I've just turned twenty-two Working tables at the Black Dog and wearing out my shoes And I guess if getting grabbed is all I'm qualified to do I need to find a better life where I don't need you Hey, I'm going away I'm leaving you behind me Hey, what's that you say your ties will never bind me All my life, all my life I've wanted something I can't have All this time, all my time has all been wasted Now I'm just plain Mary and I think I'm twenty-four Walked the streets for two years now, it seems like ten or more I'm petrified and I'm positive and I don't know what to do Except to find a better life where I don't need you Hey, I'm going away from the footlights here that blind me Hey, what's that you say there's nothing left inside me Hey, I'm going away someplace you won't find me Hey, what's that you say these ties will never bind me Hey, I'm going away I'm leaving you behind me Hey, what's that you say no one can deny me
