VP_015194 Verse 1In a country town in Maryland, Lived a little girl the village pride, Ev'rybody called her Mary Ann, She was the pet of all the countryside. Mary Ann left Maryland Just for a week, why ev'rybody sighed: Chorus 1Ain'tcha coming back, Ain'tcha coming back, Ain'tcha coming back, Mary Ann, to Maryland? Since you went away, things ain't half so gray, Ev'ry one wants Mary Ann. The birdies miss you, too, Their little songs are blue, Since they found that you have left us, Mary Ann, We all are yearning for your returning, Now, ain'tcha coming back, Mary Ann, to Maryland? Ain'tcha Verse 2In that country town in Maryland, Also lived a handsome blushing lad, And to win the hand of Mary Ann, He gave up all the other girls he had. Since Mary Ann wears a wedding band, We never have to sing that song so sad.
