[]Take [A] Message To Mary:The
Everly Brothers.


INTRO:(Spoken)
[C]
These are the words of a frontier lad,

    [Em]                 [G]         [G7]           
who lost his love when he turned bad.


#1. 

[C]                                                 
Take a message to Mary, 

           
    [G]                      [C]
but don't tell her where I am.

                                                     
[C]
Take a message to Mary, 

                          
    [G]                  [C]
but don't say I'm in a jam.

                   
        [Am]                [Em]
You can tell her I had to see the world,


   [Am]               [D]        [G]   [G7]
or tell her that my ship set sail.


[G7]      [C]       [Em]         [F]        [C]
You can say she better not wait for me,



    [Am]             [G]      [Am]        [C]              [G7]
but don't tell her I'm in jail. No, don't tell her I'm
   [C]
in jail.

 
#2.
[C]                                              
Take a message to Mary,
 


    [G]                        [C]
but don't tell her what I've done.


 
[C]
Please don't mention the stagecoach,

               
        [G7]                   [C]
and the shot from a careless gun.

[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/e/everly-brothers/38599.html ]
                 
        [Am]                [Em]
You can tell her I had to change my plans,

        
    [Am]             [D]       [G]  [G7]
and cancel out the wedding day.



    [C]            [Em]         [F]      [C]
But please don't mention my lonely cell,


                     
      [Am]        [G]    [Am]       [C]      [G7]    [C]
where I'm gonna pine away, un-til my dying day.



#3.
[C]                           [G]       
Take a message to Mary, but don't tell her all

    [C]
you know.


[C]                               [G7]               [C]
My hearts aching for Mary, Lord knows I miss her so.


     [Am]                 [Em]
Just tell her I went to Timbuktu,


[Am]           [D]             [G]    [G7]
Tell her I'm searchin' for gold.


        [C]         [Em]          [F]       [C]
You can say she'd better find someone new,


   [Am]      [G]      [Am]        [C]          [G7]      [C]
to cherish and to hold. Oh, Lord, this cell is cold.



      [C]          [Am]            [C]         [G7]        [C]
OUTRO:Maaaa..ry, Maaa..ry. Oh, Lord this cell..is..cold.


 

 
A fifties favourite from Kraziekhat.
