O Mary Don't You Weep - Bruce Springsteen / Trad - Ukulele Chords

Well I can't be the only one who went to the Ukulele Festival Of Great Britain and came home, grabbed these lyrics and played along to this one - O Mary Don't You Weep.


This was the finale of the Saturday night when all the days performers came back to the stage to deliver a superb singalong. Crowd were dancing in the aisles, and thanks to Phil Doleman and Tim Smithies for leading the singing. Video at the end for those of you who couldn't make it to play along with! (Beware, it's a long one - but it was a long one on the night too!). And its an easily adaptable song - stick an instrumental in wherever you like.

And, I've only typed chords in for first few - but it's the same throughout - and my typing fingers got sore.... Technically on guitar the E7 is an E, but on a uke, E7 is working for me.


[Am] Well if I could I [E7] surely would
Stand on the rock where [Am] Moses stood
[Dm] Pharaoh's army got [Am] drownded
[E7] O Mary don't you [Am] weep

[Am] O Mary don't you [E7] weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you [Am] weep, don't mourn
[Dm] Pharaoh's army got [Am] drownded
[E7] O Mary don't you [Am] weep

[Am] Well Mary wore three [E7] links and chains
On every link was [Am] Jesus' name
[Dm] Pharaoh's army got [Am] drownded
[E7] O Mary don't you [Am] weep

[Am] O Mary don't you [E7]weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you [Am] weep, don't mourn
[Dm] Pharaoh's army got [Am] drownded
[E7] O Mary don't [Am] weep

Well one of these nights bout 12 o'clock
This old world is gonna rock
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

Well Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
Smote' the water with a two by four
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

Well old Mr. Satan he got mad
Missed that soul that he thought he had
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

Brothers and sisters don't you cry
There'll be good times by and by
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't weep

Well oh Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't weep

God gave Noah the rainbow sign
"No more water but fire next time"
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't  mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't  mourn
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't weep

Repeat to end!
