Lyrics

Mary Thompson

As the fog was slowly rising, on the still and silent bay
Not a single word was spoken...not a soul knew what to say
In the distance like a whisper, some would swear they heard a girl
the voice of Mary Thompson.. as she drifted from this world

Oh the water was so muddy, so cold and oh so deep...
Like the life of Mary Thompson...something bad lie underneath
But they only found her locket, in the hand of Bobby May
when they pulled him from the bottom ..of the
still and silent bay.

Mary, Mary, we swear we never knew
how bad it really was...or what he put you through
But I believe they saw it all and turned their eyes away
Leaving you your only friend....The still and silent bay.

The papers said it was a shame, that Mary must be dead
Said Bobby May would burn in hell ..for what he did and said
For the diary Mary left behind wrote "this night we both die"...
with stories from a tortured soul..that made the whole town cry

Mary, Mary, we swear we never knew
how bad it really was...or what he put you through
But I believe they saw it all and turned their eyes away
Leaving you your only friend....The still and silent bay.

They said God bless the child,
then left her there with one
who's heart was cold and evil...
The Devil's very son !

Instrumental

They never found her body...so in her empty grave..
her locket and her diary, were buried as they prayed
And from the hill above them, I listened to them pray......
then left behind my only friend...the still and silent bay...

Great storytelling! Good marriage of lyrics and music. Good hook and title. Great arrangement!
