Lyrics:
Mary Queen of Arkansas, it's not too early for
dreamin'
The sky is grown with cloud seed sown and a
bastard's love can be redeeming
Mary, my queen, your soft hulk is reviving
No, you're not too late to desecrate, the servants
are just rising
Well I'm just a lonely acrobat, the live wire is my
trade
I've been a shine boy for your acid brat and a wharf
rat of your state
Mary, my queen, your blows for freedom are
missing
You're not man enough for me to hate or woman
enough for kissing

The big top is for dreamers, we can take the circus
all the way to the border
And the gallows wait for martyrs whose papers are
in order
But I was not born to live to die and you were not
born for queenin'
It's not too late to infiltrate, the servants are just
leavin'

Mary queen of Arkansas, your white skin is
deceivin'
You wake and wait to lie in bait and you almost got
me believin'
But on your bed Mary I can see the shadow of a
noose
I don't understand how you can hold me so tight and
love me so damn loose

But I know a place where we can go Mary
Where I can get a good job and start all over again
clean
I got contacts deep in Mexico where the servants
have been seen
