ARTIST: Jethro Tull
TITLE: Cross-Eyed Mary
Lyrics and Chords

Who would be a poor man, a beggar man, a thief
If he had a rich man in his hand
And who would steal the candy from a laughing baby's mouth
If he could take it from the moneyed man

/ Em - F - / G - D - / :

Cross-eyed Mary goes jumping in again
She signs no contract but she always plays the game
She dines in Hampstead Village on expense accounted gruel
And the jack knife barber drops her off at school

/ Am G Am G / / Bbm G# Bbm G# / Bbm G# C D B / 

Laughing in the playground, gets no kicks from little boys
Would rather make it with a letching gray
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung
Who watches through the railings as they play

{As Refrain}
Cross-eyed Mary finds it hard to get along
She's a poor man's rich girl and she'll do it for a song
She's a rich man's stealer but her favor's good and strong
She's the Robin Hood of Highgate, helps the poor man get along

Laughing in the playground...


Cross-eyed Mary
Oh, Mary - o-oh, Cross-eyed Mary

/ Em - C - D - Am Bbm Em / Bb C D Em - - - /
