lyrics

Oh Maryanne, let’s ride on through the weather.
We’ll make a stand; we’ll press our hands together.
And you will say, “Now let us pray.
Like we are lovers, to our Virgin Mother.”

Oh Maryanne, you might have heard
I stopped believing in the Word,
but the repeating had left a trace
and so I hail Mary so Full of Grace.

Oh Maryanne, will you help me find her?
You sing the prayer to serve as our reminder.
I’ll steer the wheel in the right direction
And maybe then, She’ll offer her protection.

Oh Maryanne, do you think She’ll hear us
with satellites clouding her receivers?
And all the voices that we’ve flown to outer space--
the foolish hopes of our human race.

Oh Maryanne, will you help me find her?
You sing the prayer to serve as our reminder.
I’ll steer the wheel in the right direction
And maybe then, She’ll offer her protection.

Oh Mother Mary give me your Grace
so that the past can be erased.

Oh Maryanne, let’s ride on through the weather.
We’ll make a stand; we’ll press our hands together.

Oh Maryanne, I am a liar:
I let my mind be ruled by my desire.
Mother Mary send me your Grace
so that the past can be erased.

Oh Mother Mary give me your Grace
so that the past can be erased.
