That pretty much gets played throughout the whole song. 
There are more guitars and a banjo that play along,
but this sounds pretty good by itself. Just listen to it 
and you'll get the feeling for it. 

Lyrics:


Mary, carry your babe
Bound up tight like lips around a whimper
Your fingers over my face
Blind eyed Samson driven to the temple
And night birds digging 'til dawn
Freedom hangs like heaven over everyone
Ain't nobody knows what a newborn holds
But his mama says he'll walk on water
and wander back home
Wander back home

Mary, carry your shame
Well past all those eyes across the avenue
Fish heads running from rain
You know I'll do anything you want me to
Lamp oil lovers may say
"Freedom hangs like heaven over everyone"
Ain't nobody knows what a newborn holds
But his papa's going to hide shaking gristle
And shaking like bone
Shaking like bone

Mary, carry my name
Hoof marks hacked up all I had to offer you
Looked all over this place
Lost your portrait lately when the winter blew
In like Herod and them
Freedom hangs like heaven over everyone
Ain't nobody knows what a newborn holds
But a dollar says he'll lick that devil
And do it alone
Do it alone

this song, like many of Sam Beam's songs is in an alternate tuning D F# D G B D
Have some fun by figuring the rest out for yourself. It sounds so great once you finally get it right
