Old Mary had the ESP
It seemed to run in the family
Passed down from old granny Sue
Who knew exactly just what to do

With a parlor right down on Main
Psychic Mary on the window pane
Digging deep in the human soul
Talking folks down the rabbit hole

Velvet curtains hung up on the walls
Bathroom shelves all lined with dolls
Hundreds of candles burning in the room
Old souls risen from their tomb

Psychic Mary
Came from Tucumcari

For ten dollars she'll read your palm
Conversate with your long gone mom
Up in the sky she's doing fine
With the cards gives you a sign

On a cloud with your family tree
All are perched on God's bended knee
Someday soon Mary said to me
You'll be together for eternity

The Carnivaleros Tucson, Arizona

The Carnivaleros' music has always been difficult to define - they combine moody Eastern European motifs, western movie themes with strains of Zydeco rhythms, Tex-Mex polkas, waltzes and swing to create a stew of Desert Bayou Music.
