Gerry Rafferty – Mary Skeffington lyrics

Mary Skeffington, close your eyes
And make believe that you are just a girl again
Go to sleep tonight, dream of days
When you had something there to light the way.

Remember a holiday in a north-of-England town
You slept in a room upstairs on a bed of eiderdown.

Mary Skeffington, when you wake
You mustn't be afraid to face another day
Think of what you have, you'll get by
You've always been a lady so hold your head up high.

Look back on a home where you spent the best years of your life
Remember the man who asked you if you would be his wife.

Mary Skeffington, close your eyes
And make believe that you are just a girl again
Go to sleep tonight, dream of days
When you had something there to light the way.
