Subject: RE: Mary don't you weep--meaning
My husband and I watched the season finale of Deadwood on HBO and they closed the show with Springsteen's recording of this song. It was quite fitting given the story line which i don't want to spoil for those that haven't seen it yet. Let's just say Pharoah was analagous to George Hearst who doesn't drown mind you - just finsihes up his fictional storyline to go on and do his other real life accomplishments.
