Mary Ann Regrets

Burl Ives

 CG7
1. I saved up my money to buy my sweetheart some flowers,

 G7C
 For Saturday's date and I restlessly counted the hours.

 CF
 Then today in the mail I received this short little note,

 FG7
 And I broke down inside at the message that her mother
 C
 wrote.

CHORUS:

 CF
'Mary-Ann regrets she's unable to see you again,

 FG7
 We're leaving for Europe next week, she'll be busy 'till
 C
 then.'

 C
 They know that she loves me, but poor boys don't fit in
 F
their plan.

 FG7GG7C
 Good-bye, good luck, good-bye my sweet Mary-Ann.

 C
2.The weeks have gone by - not a word have I heard
 G7
since then.

 G7C
 In the papers I read of the far away places she's been.

 CF
 I can't eat, I can't sleep, for over and over again,

 FG7GG7C
 My mind reads that letter and I cry for my Mary-Ann.

CHORUS:

 CG7
3.My Mary-Ann died - they say she just wasted away.

 G7GC
 If I could have seen her I know she'd be living today.

 CC7F
 For we loved each other and if they  had  left us alone,

 G7GC
 Today she'd be wearing my ring, not a blanket of stone.

CHORUS:

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat!
