134. O Mary, Don't You Weep

Refrain:
O Mary don't you weep, don't you mourn,
O Mary don't you weep, don't you mourn;
Pharaoh's army got drownded, O Mary, don't you weep.

1 One of these mornings bright and fair,
goin'a take my wings and cleave the air;
Pharaoh's army got drowneded, O Mary don't you weep.

2 When I get to heaven goin'a sing and shout,
ain't nobody there goin'a turn me out;
Pharaoh's army got drowneded, O Mary don't you weep.

3 When I get to heaven goin'a put on my shoes,
goin'a run about and spread the news;
Pharaoh's army got drowneded, O Mary don't you weep.
