Take A Message To Mary
recorded by The Everly Brothers
written by Boudleaux and Felice Boudleaux
 

C
These are the words of a frontier lad
             Em                  C   G7
Who lost his love when he turned b-a-ad
 
C
Take a message to Mary
    G7                     C
But don't tell her where I am
 
Take a message to Mary
              G7       C
But don't say I'm in a jam
 
             Am           Em
You can tell her I had to see the world
   Am               D7       G7
Or tell her that my ship set sail
        C       Em         F        C
You can say she better not wait for me
                   G7     C
But don't tell her I'm in jail 
                  G7     C
Oh don't tell her I'm in jail
 
                                             
Take a message to Mary
    G7                       C
But don't tell her what I've done
 
Please don't mention the stagecoach
                    G7       C
And the shot from a careless gun
 
        Am                Em
You can tell her I had to change my plans
    Am             D7      G7
And cancel out the wedding day
    C            Em         F      C
But please don't mention my lonely cell
      Am                           G7    C
Where I'm gonna pine away until my dying day
 
                                            
Take a message to Mary
          G7               C
But don't tell her all you know
      
My heart's aching for Mary
             G7       C
Lord knows I miss her so
 
          Am            Em
Just tell her I went to Timbuktu
     Am      D7            G7
Tell her I'm searching for gold
    C           Em          F       C
You can say she better find someone new
   Am                                G7      C
To cherish and to hold  oh Lord this cell is cold
              Am                C    G7 C
M-ary  Ma-a-a-ary  oh Lord this cell is cold
