BLUES FOR MARY by Scott Detweiler

An angel came to me
He had a horn
An angel came to me
He had a horn
And as he blew his song
I knew some babies would be bein born

It sounded like Louie
Way down New Orleans
It sounded like Pete Fountain
Way down New Orleans
There’ll be a baby for you
And a baby, a baby for me

We gotta be strong
We gotta be brave
We gotta have faith
There’s a whole world to save

Gabe already blew
That song for your man
Gabe already blew
That song for you man
So’s when you see Zachariah
He’ll already understand
