“Devil Woman:” A Song About Trust, Temptation, and Forgiveness


Trusting someone is the most important factor in a relationship. It is needed for it to work out and make things easy. However, when someone breaks the trust that you give them, it makes it difficult to trust again. But in Marty Robbins’ song “Devil Woman,” the case is different.

The Story of the Song

Mary, one of the characters in the song, forgave her lover despite the fact that he cheated on her. The narrator told Mary everything he has done. He felt guilty about it, and he was ready to accept his fate if Mary decides to leave him. However, she didn’t, instead, she forgave him.

I told Mary about us, told her about our great sin

Mary just cried and forgave me, Mary took me back again

She said if I wanted my freedom, I could be free evermore

But I don’t want to be and I don’t want to see Mary cry anymore.

What about you, will you forgive someone who cheated on you? Will you give them a second chance like Mary, or will you walk out of your relationship?
