Mary Ann Regrets  Burl Ives

1. [C]I saved up my money to buy my sweetheart some [G7]flowers,

[G7]For Saturday's date and I restlessly counted the [C]hours.

[C]Then today in the mail I received this short little [F]note,
[F]And I [G7]broke down inside at the message that her mother

'[C]Mary-Ann regrets she's unable to see you [F]again,

[F]We're [G7]leaving for Europe next week, she'll be busy 'till
[C]They know that she loves me, but poor boys don't fit in
their [F]plan.
[F]Good-[G7]bye, good luck, [G]good-bye my [G7]sweet [C]Mary-Ann.
2.[C]The weeks have gone by - not a word have I heard
since [G7]then.
[G7]In the papers I read of the far away places she's [C]been.
[C]I can't eat, I can't sleep, for over and over [F]again,
[F]My [G7]mind reads that [G]letter and I [G7]cry for my M[C]ary-Ann.

3.[C]My Mary-Ann died - they say she just wasted [G7]away.
[G7]If I could have seen her I know she'd be [G]living [C]today.
[C]For we loved each other and if they  had  [C7]left us [F]alone,
[G7]Today she'd be wearing my [G]ring, not a blanket of[C] stone.

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat!
