The Kindness of Strangers
N. Cave
Murder Ballads

INTRO: Dm  G  F  G  C

C                       Am
They found Mary Bellows cuffed to the bed
Dm                            G
With a rag in her mouth and a bullet in her head
F       G    C       G
Oh poor Mary Bellows

She'd grown up hungry, she'd grown up poor
So she left her home in Arkansas
Oh poor Mary Bellows

She wanted to seet he deep blue sea
She drove across Tennessee
Oh poor Mary Bellows

She met a man along the way
He introduced himself as Richard Slade
Oh poor Mary Bellows

Poor Mary thought that she might die
When she saw the ocean for the first time
Oh poor Mary Bellows

She checked into a ceap little place
Richard Slade carried in her old suitcase
Oh poor Mary Bellows

I'm a good girl sir, she said to him
I couldn't possibly permit you in
Oh poor Mary Bellows

Slade tipped his hat and winked his eye
And turned away without a goodbye
Oh poor Mary Bellows

She sat on her bed and thought of home
With the sea breeze whistling all alone
oh poor Mary Bellows

In hope and loneliness she crossed the floor
And undid the latch on her front door
Oh poor Mary Bellows

They found her next day cuffed to the bed
A rag in her mouth and a bullet in her head
Oh poor Mary Bellows

C                    Am
So mothers keep your girls at home
Dm                     G
Don't let them journey out alone
C                    Am
Tell them this world is full of danger
Dm                      G
And to shun the company of strangers
F       G    C      
Oh poor Mary Bellows
F       G    C
Oh poor Mary Bellows
