Cousin Mary was a lady who could really hold her own
She went fighting for her country
She went fighting for her home
Then there's the time she lost her husband
He was fighting for the right
She'll be leaving in the morning
Won't you please say goodnight

(Harmonica pattern)

All the money in the world
Couldn't tie old Mary down
You can believe her when she tells you
She's had her turn around
There could be knights and kings in amour
Horses waiting just to fight
She'll be leaving in the morning
Won't you please say goodnight
She'll be leaving in the morning
Won't you please say goodnight
Oh lovely lady
Oh lovely lady always out there (pause)
She'll be leaving in the morning
Won't you please take good care

(Harmonica)

Oh lovely lady
Oh lovely lady
Always out there (pause)
She'll be leaving in the morning
Won't you please take good care

(Harmonica)
