(Ian and George Sutherland)

The light shines down the valley
The wind blows up the alley
Oh how I wish I was lyin' in the arms of Mary

She took the pains of boyhood
And turned them into feel good
Oh how I wish I was lyin' in the arms of Mary

CHORUS
Mary was the girl who taught me all I had to know
She put me right on my first mistake

Summer wasn't gone
When I learned all she had to show (there was written give)
She really gave all a boy could take

So now when I get lonely
Still lookin for my one and only
That's when I wish was lyin' in
The Arms of Mary

(repeat chorus)
