Mary Ann Yerrell

you’re not to blame

When Tom passed on

it doused your flame


Back when TB

could not be stopped

At thirty-seven

your soul mate dropped

Six mouths to feed

and nothing for rent

Hard to survive

when everything’s spent

Shoreditch girl

in an East End world

you’re the reason

I’m right here

In this song’s

where you belong

so you’ll never

disappear

Mary Ann Yerrell

you're not to blame

All you asked

was he keep his name

Your two-year old

a foster child

Walls turned in

when the Devil smiled


Your husband gone

your youngest too

The hopelessness

just grew and grew


Shoreditch girl

in an East End world

you’re the reason

I’m right here

In this song’s

where you belong

so you’ll never

disappear


There’s always something

we reach for

high up in the sky

Always someone

we can’t forget

no matter how we try

And always someone

we cling to

when it’s time to die


Mary Ann Yerrell

you’re not to blame

The Hell on Earth

drove you insane

You cared too much

your world went black

No one knew

you’d not be back


The River Thames

an icy grave

Takes a dark soul

to be that brave


Shoreditch girl

in an East End world

you’re the reason

I’m right here

In this song’s

where you belong

so you’ll never

disappear

High tide, low tide

no place to hide

the River Thames

is deep and wide

High tide, low tide

and sick inside

the River Thames

helped you decide


Mary Ann Yerrell

the Shoreditch girl

you’re the reason

I’m right here

In this song’s

where you belong

so you’ll never

disappear
