"Mary And Joseph" lyrics - TIM MCGRAW

"Mary And Joseph"

Mary was the first of three
Long black hair and sugar-sweet
Daddy's eyes and her Momma's crooked smile

She was barely seventeen
Got a job keepin' dishes clean
Planned to stay in this city for a while, yeah
For a while

Joseph ran a lumber yard
About a mile from Olive Park
Quiet boy, never had much to say

It was love right from the start
He bought a ring, won Mary's heart
Had hopes for a home and kids someday
Kids someday

The angel scared her half to death
She would've screamed, but she lost her breath
On a midnight there in the middle of May

He said, "Mary, don't be afraid
You'll bear a son that the Lord has made
Call him Jesus, He'll light the way"

She packed the clothes, he made the plans
They had to go to Bethlehem
But there was nowhere left to stay

So in a barn she gave birth
To the King of Kings, the Lord of Earth
Just a little bitty thing sleepin' on the hay
Sleepin' on the hay

The story's too long to tell
But He walked on water and lived through hell
Killed on a cross; rose from the grave

We got a King, they got a son
Mary and Joseph were the only ones
There on that very first Christmas day
There on that very first Christmas day
