mary’s wandering lyrics – joan baez

once mary would go wandering
to other land would run
that she might find her son,
that she might find her son

whom met she as she journeyed forth
saint peter, that good man
who sadly did her scan,
who sadly did her scan

“oh tell me have you seen him yet
the one i love the most
the son whom i have lost,
the son whom i have lost”

“too well, too well i’ve seen thy son
’twas by a palace gate
most grievous was his state,
most grievous was his state

for save what wore he on his head
a crown of th*rns he wore
a cross he also bore,
a cross he also bore”

once mary would go wandering
to other land would run
that she might find her son,
that she might find her son
