Take A Message To Mary

Everly Brothers

[]Take A 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.

 CGC
 Take a message to Mary,but  don't tell her where I am.
 CGC
 Take a message to Mary, 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,
 AmGAmCG7C
but  don't tell her  I'm in jail. No,    don't tell her I'm  in jail.

 CGC
 Take a message to Mary, but  don't tell her what I've done.
 CG7C
 Please don't mention the stagecoach, 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.

 CGC
 Take a message to Mary, but don't tell her allyou 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.
