There's a blizard comming on,
           C
how I'm wishing I was home,
       C                              G
for my pony's lame, and he can hardly stand.
       C               C7
Listen to that norther sigh,
      F                    C
if we don't get home we'll die.
         G                        Am
But it's only seven miles to Mary Ann's.
     G                        C
It's only seven miles to Mary Ann's.

        C                C
You can bet we're on her mind,
         F           C
for it's nearly supertime
         C                               G
and I'll bet there's hot biscuits in the pan.
         C                     C7
Lord, my hands feel like there froze,
              F              C
and there's a numbness in my toes.
         G                            Am
But it's only five more miles to Mary Ann's.
     G                            C
It's only five more miles to Mary Ann's.

            C              C7
That wind's howling and it seems
       F              C
mighty like a woman's scream.
         C                             G
And we'd best a-be moving faster if we can.
         C                C7
Dan just think about that barn,
         F               C
with the hay so soft and warm.
         G                             Am
For it's only three more miles to Mary Ann's,
     G                             C
It's only three more miles to Mary Ann's.

Dan, get up you or`nery cuss,
or you'll be the death of us.
I'm so weary, but I'll help you if I can.
Alright dan, perhaps it's best,
if we stop a while and rest.
For it's still a hundred yards to Mary Ann's.
It's still a hundred yards to Mary Ann's.

Late that night the storm was gone,
the found him there at dawn.
He'd a-made it but he just couldn't leave old Dan.
Yes they found him there on the plains,
hands froze to the reigns.
He was just a hundred yards form Mary Ann's.

        G                              C
He was just a hundred yards from Mary Ann's.
