GUEST,guest Origin: Pull Your Shades Down Mary Ann (37) RE: Origin: Pull Your Shades Down Mary Ann 11 Apr 20


My Grampa sang these verses, as I remember them, to me in 1950 when he was 60 years old.

Keep your shades down Mary Ann
Keep your shades down Mary Ann
Last night I saw you I saw you
You were combing your golden hair   It was hanging from a chair
So from now on in the future if you want to keep your secrets
Keep your shades down Mary Ann

Keep your head down Fritzi boy
Keep your head down Fritzi boy
Last night we saw you we saw you
You were bending the barbed wire   (a soldier would BEND the barbed wire to crawl under it)
Just before we opened fire
..... (not sure about the rest)
