Oh Granny Mary
High all the time
Oh Granny Mary
Taking what is mine

Drainin Poor daddy dry
Like any good parasite
Mother left him on his knees
After 30 years or more

Mary’s lost her soul to the methamphetamines
Now she’s found a man to live out her lazy schemes

Oh Granny Mary
Old before her time
Oh Granny Mary
Haunting me and mine

It’s like Pa’s gone back to his own kind
His Ma cooked Meth in their double-wide
They smoked cigarettes with the windows closed
In fake wood paneling

No good women why you haunting me
Infiltrating my family tree
No good women nothing better to do
You better start running when I, when I catch up to you

Oh Granny Mary
It’s just a matter of time
Oh Granny Mary
Before you die

How could he put, Her before his own children
Now Mary’s just making sure, there’s nothing left for them

When he’s tapped she’ll be, off looking for another sucker man
Leave the kids to care for pa, and pay her debts for him.

Kara Suzanne Woodstock, New York

Part sullen cowgirl, part seductive cabaret singer and all soulful folk-rock songstress. Kara bewitches audiences with her original songs that are simultaneously heartbreaking and carefree. She's this generation's answer to Dolly Parton and Patty Griffin.
