Devil Woman You're Evil...

During the aforementioned 16.5 hour car ride, we listened to whatever the kids wanted to listen to, over and over and over again. We made the mistake of telling them that one of the songs on the Marty Robbins tape was about their cousin, Mary, since it had her name in it. Well they wanted to hear that one over and over again and now Bea can sing the entire song by heart along with some of Marty's other hits:

Devil Woman by Marty Robbins

I told Mary about us, told her about our great sin
Mary just cried and forgave me, Mary took me back again
She said if I wanted my freedom, I could be free evermore
But I don't want to be and I don't want to see Mary cry anymore.

Devil woman, devil woman, let go of me
Devil woman, let me be
Just leave me alone,
I want to go home.

Mary is waiting and weeping alone in our shack by the sea
Even after I hurt her, Mary' still in love with me
Devil woman, it's over, trapped no more by your charms
I don't want to stay, I want to get away, Women let go of my arms.

Devil woman, you're evil like the dark coral reef
Like the winds that bring high tides, you bring sorrow and grief
You made me so ashamed to face Mary, barely had the strength to tell
Skies are not so black, Mary took me back, Mary has broken your spell.
