Mary Had a Baby

 

Mary had a baby boy, oh, Lord.
Mary had a baby boy, oh my Lord,
Mary had a baby, oh Lord,
People keep a-comin an the train done gone.

 

What did she name him? oh, Lord,
What did she name him? oh my Lord,
What did she name him? oh Lord,
People keep a-comin an the train done gone.

 

She named him Jesus, oh, Lord,
She named him Jesus, oh my Lord,
She named him Jesus, oh Lord,
People keep a-comin an the train done gone.

 

Now where was he born? oh, Lord,
Now where was he born? oh my Lord,
Now where was he born? oh Lord,
People keep a-comin an the train done gone.

 

Born in a stable, oh, Lord,
Born in a stable, oh my Lord,
Born in a stable, oh Lord,
People keep a-comin an the train done gone.

 

And where did she lay him? oh, Lord,
And where did she lay him? oh my Lord,
And where did she lay him, oh Lord,
People keep a-comin an the train done gone.

 

She laid him in a manger, oh, Lord,
She laid him in a manger, oh my Lord,
She laid him in a manger, oh Lord,
People keep a-comin an the train done gone.

 

Mary had a baby boy, oh, Lord.
Mary had a baby boy, oh my Lord,
Mary had a baby, oh Lord,
People keep a-comin an the train done gone.
