about

Written like an old time fiddle tune, Marybelle tells a story that could very well be true, but is completely fabricated.

Mary left town and her boyfriend went to prison for a crime he didn't commit. Years later they see each other at the county fair.

lyrics

Marybelle won't you take my hand
Won't you take my word this time
Marybelle won't you take a ride
On this ferris wheel with me

Marybelle its been a while
Since Ive seen those lonesome eyes
Marybelle won't you take a ride
On this ferris wheel with me

Incandescent lights blinking
Shining brightly in your eyes
Chase those colors round
Chase the red and blue and green

Candy apple popcorn ball
Touch that metal
Feel that bar
Swing on over
Looking down
Looking far below

Marybelle won't you take my hand
Won't you take my word this time
Marybelle won't you take a ride
On this ferris wheel with me

Marybelle its been a while
Since Ive seen those lonesome eyes
Marybelle won't you take a ride
On this ferris wheel with me
