Take A Message To Mary

Everly Brothers

 A
[]Take  Message To Mary:The
Everly Brothers.

INTRO:(Spoken)
 C
 
These are the words of a frontier lad,

 EmGG7
                              
who lost his love when he turned bad.


 C
 
Take a message to Mary,

 GC
                          
but don't tell her where I am.

 C
 
Take a message to Mary,

 GC
                      
but don't say I'm in a jam.

 AmEm
                        
You can tell her I had to see the world,

 AmDGG7
                             
or tell her that my ship set sail.

 G7CEmFC
                               
You can say she better not wait for me,


 AmGAmCG7
                                             
but don't tell her I'm in jail. No, don't tell her I'm
 C
   
in jail.

 C
 
Take a message to Mary,

 GC
                            
but don't tell her what I've done.

 C
 
Please don't mention the stagecoach,

 G7C
                           
and the shot from a careless gun.

 AmEm
                        
You can tell her I had to change my plans,

 AmDGG7
                          
and cancel out the wedding day.


 CEmFC
                               
But please don't mention my lonely cell,

 AmGAmCG7C
                                   
where I'm gonna pine away, un-til my dying day.


 CG
                            
Take a message to Mary, but don't tell her all

 C
    
you know.

 CG7C
                                               
My hearts aching for Mary, Lord knows I miss her so.

 AmEm
                      
Just tell her I went to Timbuktu,

 AmDGG7
                             
Tell her I'm searchin' for gold.

 CEmFC
                                  
You can say she'd better find someone new,

 AmGAmCG7C
                                       
to cherish and to hold. Oh, Lord, this cell is cold.


 CAmCG7C
                                             
OUTRO:Maaaa..ry, Maaa..ry. Oh, Lord this cell..is..cold.

A fifties favourite from Kraziekhat.
