Verse:

B                          A
We only knew each other by letter

                          B
When I met her off of the train.

                                   A
When the smoke had cleared and the dust was still

                                       B
She was standing there and speaking my name

                              A
Guaranteed she looked like an angel

                                  B
I couldnt think of what I should say

                         A
When Adam saw Eve in the garden,

                             B
I believe he felt the same way.

B                      A                                 B
I handed her up on the wagon and loaded up the trunk for her.

                                              A
She was sitting up there WITH the gold in her hair

                             B
I tried to get a hold of my mind.


Chorus:

E                       B
Think you could love me Mary

E                        C      E
Think we got a chance of love

       B                       A
Do you think you could love me Mary

                     B
Now you oughta be my wife.


Verse 2:(the chords are the same in each verse)

Finally headed out of the station, drove up the home trail
And when we came on the farm she laid her had on mine;
Thought my resolution had failed.
and i froze as she stepped in the doorway,
Stood there as still as could be.
I said I knowin ain't much, without a womans touch,
And she turned around and looked at me.

chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/mark_knopfler/prairie_wedding_tab_ver_2.html ]
Think you could love me Mary
Think we got a chance of love
Do you think you could love me Mary
Now you oughta be my wife.

Verse 3:

We had a prairie wedding,
There was a preacher and a neighbor or two.
I gave my golden thing an gold wedding ring
And the both of us said I do.
When the sun's going down on the prairie,
And the gold in her hair is a flame
I say Do you really love me Mary and
I hold her and I whisper her name.

Chorus:
do you Think you could love me Mary
Think we got a chance of love
Do you think you could love me Mary
Now you oughta be my wife.
