Take A Message To Mary Lyrics

These are the words of a frontier lad
Who lost his love when he turned bad

Take a message to Mary
But don't tell her where I am
Take a message to Mary
But don't say I’m in a jam

You can tell her I had to see the world
Or tell her that my ship set sail
You can say she’d better not wait for me
But don't tell her I’m in jail
Oh, don't tell her I’m in jail

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

Take a message to Mary
But don't tell her all you know
My heart's aching for Mary
Lord knows I miss her so

Just tell her I went to Timbuktu
Tell her I’m searching for gold
You can say she’d better find someone new
To cherish and to hold
Oh lord, this cell is cold

Mary, Mary
Oh, lord this cell is cold
