Mary Ann Regrets
recorded by Burl Ives           [3/4 time]
written by Harland Howard
C                                             G7
I saved up my money to buy my sweetheart some flowers
For Saturday's date and I restlessly counted the hours
                                      C7           F
Then today in the mail I received this short little note
    G7                                                 C
And I broke down inside at the message that her mother wrote
Mary Ann regrets she's unable to see you again
We're leaving for Europe next week she'll be busy 'till then
                                                C7           F
They know that she loves me but poor boys don't fit in their plan
   G7                                   C
Goodbye good luck goodbye my sweet Mary Ann
The weeks have gone by not a word have I heard since then
In the papers I read of the far away places she's been
                                   C7       F
I can't eat I can't sleep for over and over again
   G7                                           C
My mind reads that letter and I cry for my Mary Ann
Repeat #2
My Mary Ann died they say she just wasted away
If I could have seen her I know she'd be living today
                                       C7      F
For we loved each other and if they had left us alone
  G7                                            C
Today she'd be wearing my ring not a blanket of stone

Repeat #2
