Emmylou Harris
“Mary Danced With Soldiers”
“Will The Circle Be Unbroken” Vol. 2 Album

Intro: D (softly 1st strum, then louder for rhythm)

D                    G            A       D
She'd slip away each day with the dimming light
D                                 G        A        D
And with the sweetest smile she'd kiss the child goodnight
D      G                   A                      D    
At the mill she'd work her fingers till they were raw
D                               G        A     D
For the sake of her son and the daddy he never saw


Chorus
G                D
Mary danced with soldiers
G             A        D
She stepped a light quadrille
G                D
Shawl across her shoulders
D       A        D-G-D  D       A        D
To keep away the chill, to keep away the chill


Verse 2, same chords
It was a rebel boy who brought her joy they say
Though the years passed the memories stood fast each day
Before a bullet crushed the life of their romance
He gave her a shawl and a parasol from France

Chorus

Verse 3, same chords
They came around to the tavern in town that night
And with silent cries Mary never tried to fight
They cut her hair and left her body torn
Her spirit slipped away before the dawn

Chorus twice
