MARY'S VINEYARD (Wayne Carson Thompson / Bob Wilkins) Claude King - 1970 Oh,the grapes in Mary's vineyard are the sweetest on the vine Old man Oscar Dill lived back in the Tennessee hills He's got him two or three stills and he makes heavy water Oh, I worked for him one time runnin' sour mash across the line And he warned me to pay no mind to his three daughters Yeah, one was eighteen and one was twenty-two, one was just my age One by one I opened the door to a gilded cage, yes I did now He don't know and I ain't gonna tell him what I've done one time 'Cause he thinks he raised three little angels, ah, I think that's fine I made love to his sweet Martha and pretty little Caroline But the grapes in Mary's vineyard are the sweetest on the vine Now old man Oscar Dill said he wouldn't hesitate to kill Anybody messin' round his stills or his three daughters But even so, late at night when the moon wasn't shining too bright I'd sneaked around get brave all right, sippin' his heavy water Yeah, one was eighteen and one was twenty-two, one was just my age One by one I opened the door to a gilded cage, yes I did now He don't know and I ain't gonna tell him what I've done one time 'Cause he thinks he raised three little angels, ah, I think that's fine I made love to his sweet Martha and pretty little Caroline But the grapes in Mary's vineyard are the sweetest on the vine I made love to his sweet Martha and pretty little Caroline But the grapes in Mary's vineyard are the sweetest on the vine (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2010)
