BB Hot 100 on CADENCE Records in 1959.

INTRO:
E
These are the words of a frontier lad..
G#m7                   B7             
who lost his love when he turned bad.

#1.

Take a message to Mary..but don't tell her 
        E
where I am.
E                           B7
Take a message to Mary..but don't say I'm 
     E
in a jam.
        C#m               G#m7
You can tell her I had to see the world..
   C#m              F#       B7
or tell her that my ship set sail.
        E       G#m7       A        E
You can say she better not wait for me..
    C#m
but don't tell her I'm in jail.
    E              B7     E
Oh, don't tell her I'm in jail.

          E
what I've done.
E
Please don't mention the stagecoach..and the 
B7                   E
shot from a careless gun.
        C#m               G#m7
You can tell her I had to change my plans..
    C#m            F#      B7
and cancel out the wedding day.
    E            G#m7       A      E
But please don't mention my lonely cell..
E               C#m          E      B7    E
where I'm gonna pine away..until my dying day.

#3.

Take a message to Mary..but don't tell her 
        E

E                                B7
My heart's achin' for Mary..Lord knows, I miss 
    E
her so.
     C#m                G#m7      C#m
Just tell her I went to Timbuktu..tell her I'm 
F#            B7
searchin' for gold.
        E       G#m7        A       E       
You can say she better find someone new..to cherish 
C#m    
and to hold.
    E          B7      E
Oh, Lord, this cell is cold.

OUTRO:
E        C#m               E         B7      E
