Mary Ann Regrets Chords

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                                        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

They know that she loves me, but poor boys don't fit in 
their plan.

F    G7              G           G7    C
Good-bye, good luck, good-bye my sweet Mary-Ann.

2.The weeks have gone by - not a word have I heard
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.


  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.
