                        "Take A Message To Mary"
                   (Boudleaux Bryant - Felice Bryant)

Intro:

	  E
	These are the words of a frontier lad
	    G#m                B7             E
	Who lost his love when he turned bad

Verse 1:

	 E
	Take a message to Mary
	     B7
	But don't tell her where I am
	 E
	Take a message to Mary
	     B7
	But don't say I'm in a jam
	        C#m               G#m
	You can tell her I had to see the world
	   C#m               F#       B7
	Or tell her that my ship set sail
	         E      G#m         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

Verse 2:

	Take a message to Mary
	But don't tell her what I've done
	Please don't mention the stagecoach
	And the shot from a careless gun
	You can tell her I had to change my plans
	And cancel out the wedding day
	But please don't mention my lonely cell
	Where I'm gonna pine away
	Until my dying day

Verse 3:

	Take a message to Mary
	But don't tell her all you know
	My heart's achin' for Mary
	Lord knows I miss her so
	Just tell her I went to Timbuktu
	Tell her I'm searchin' for gold
	You can say she better find someone new
	To cherish and to hold
	Oh, Lord, this cell is cold

Coda:

	 E   C#m
	Mary, Ma-A-A-A-ary
	     E         B7      E
	Oh, Lord this cell is cold
