lyrics

Mary had a baby, ay Lord
Mary had a baby, ay my Lord
Mary had a baby, ay Lord
The people keep a comin' but the train done gone

What did she name him? ay Lord
What did she name him? ay my Lord
What did she name him? ay Lord
The people keep a comin' but the train done gone

She named him Jesus, ay Lord
She named him Jesus, ay my Lord
She named him Jesus, ay Lord
The people keep a comin' but the train done gone

Where did she lay him? ay Lord
Where did she lay him? ay my Lord
Where did she lay him? ay Lord
The people keep a comin' but the train done gone

She laid him in a manger, ay Lord
She laid him in a manger, ay my Lord
She laid him in a manger, ay Lord
The people keep a comin' but the train done gone

Who kept him warm? ay Lord
Who kept him warm? ay my Lord
Who kept him warm? ay Lord
The people keep a comin' but the train done gone

The ox and the donkey, ay Lord
The ox and the donkey, ay my Lord
The ox and the donkey, ay Lord
The people keep a comin' but the train done gone

Mary had a baby, ay Lord
Mary had a baby, ay my Lord
Mary had a baby, ay Lord
The people keep a comin' but the train done gone
