Mary-Ann Regrets:Burl Ives: A chart topper in '62. C G7 1. I saved up my money to buy my sweetheart some flowers, G7 C For Saturday's date and I restlessly counted the hours. C F Then today in the mail I received this short little note, F G7 And I broke down inside at the message that her mother C wrote. CHORUS: C F 'Mary-Ann regrets she's unable to see you again, F G7 We're leaving for Europe next week, she'll be busy 'till C then.' C They know that she loves me, but poor boys don't fit in F their plan. F G7 G G7 C Good-bye, good luck, good-bye my sweet Mary-Ann. C 2.The weeks have gone by - not a word have I heard G7 since then. G7 C In the papers I read of the far away places she's been. C F I can't eat, I can't sleep, for over and over again, F G7 G G7 C My mind reads that letter and I cry for my Mary-Ann. CHORUS: C G7 3.My Mary-Ann died - they say she just wasted away. G7 G C If I could have seen her I know she'd be living today. C C7 F For we loved each other and if they had left us alone, G7 G C Today she'd be wearing my ring, not a blanket of stone. CHORUS: A sixties smash from Kraziekhat!
