Intro: C-Em 3X



V1:

C            Em
I am Mary's getaway driver 
C                           Em
'Cause being a friend means being for hire 
C                               G
Mary your laughter has grown as thin as your sigh 
        D                   C
And I'm helping you leave another man without 
             G    Gmaj7   Em
Saying good-bye

C              Em
Hey, Mary, you wear your pride 
C              Em
Like claws and like knives 
C                    G
But being tough only works for awhile 
D              C
Until you forget 
        G    Gmaj7   Em
How to smile

CHORUS:

G    D           C
Hey, Mary, don't go 
              G
Don't do it this time 
      D          C
Hey, Mary, don't go 
       A                                           D
'Cause soon there'll be no one left to care if you cry 
       C                  D
You'll be alone and a-wonderin' 
C         D                 G   Gmaj7   Em
Maybe you should have compromised 
     C    D               Em
Hey, Mary, don't go this time


V2:

C          Em
I'm Mary's getaway driver 

C                              Em
'Cause she says leaving always takes her higher 
C             G
I simply supply the 
          D             C
Rescue to save her from things 
                 G     Gmaj7   Em
She'll never commit to
C                       Em
Mary smiles, says she's just carefree 
C                   Em
and not meant to be tied down like me 
C                G
she will busy herself with nothing 
   D                         C
pretending as though she can fix 
           G   Gmaj7   Em
what she ignores



CHORUS:
G     D          C
Hey, Mary, don't go 
                 G
Don't do it this time 
     D            C
Hey, Mary, don't go 
       A                                           D
'Cause soon there'll be no one left to care if you cry 
       C              D
You'll be alone and a-wonderin' 
C         D                 G  Gmaj7  Em
Maybe you should have compromised 
        C  D             C
Hey, Mary, don't go this time

BRIDGE:

    Am                   C
I'm more than a driver - I'm an enabler 
       G                   D
'Cause part of me likes to think I can save her 
Am                       C                      
Just like a man it feels good to be needed 
      G                   D  (one strum - hold)
But I know I'm being used just like he did

V3

C                    Em
Hey, Mary, life is a series of seconds 
C             Em
A Build to an end 
C                G
Your laughter is building nothing 
D                        C
Except seeing how far a giving heart 
       G  Gmaj7  Em
Can bend, so

CHORUS:

G    D           C
Hey, Mary, don't go 
                 G
Don't do it this time 
     D           C
Hey, Mary, don't go 
       A                                           D
'Cause soon there'll be no one left to care if you cry 
       C              D
You'll be alone and a-wonderin' 
C         D                 G  Gmaj7  Em
Maybe you should have compromised 
     C     D
Hey, Mary, do not go 
C          D
Hey, Mary, do not go 
C          D             Em7           
Hey, Mary, don't go this time


C           Em  
I am Mary's getaway driver
