C Bb

We only knew each other by a letter

C

I went to meet her off the train

C Bb

When the smoke had cleared and the dust was still

C

She was standing there and speaking my name

C Bb

I guarantee she looked like an angel

C

I couldn't think of what I should say

C Bb

But when Adam saw Eve in the garden

C

I believe he felt the selfsame way

C Bb

I handed her up on the wagon

C

And I loaded up her trunk behind

C Bb

She was sitting up there with the gold in her hair

C

And I tried to get a hold of my mind

F C

Do you think that you could love me Mary

F D# F

Do you think we got a chance of a life

C Bb

Do you think that you could love me Mary

Bb C

Now you are to be my wife

C Bb

We finally headed out of the station

C

And we drove up the home trail

C Bb

And when we came on the farm she laid a hand on my arm

C

I thought my resolution would fail

C Bb

And I froze as she stepped in the doorway

C

Stood there as still as could be

C Bb

I said I know it ain't much, it needs a woman's touch

C

Lord she turned around and looked at me

F C

Do you think that you could love me Mary

F D# F

Do you think we got a chance of a life

C Bb

Do you think that you could love me Mary

Bb C

Now you are to be my wife

C Bb

We had a prairie wedding

C

There was a preacher and a neighbor or two

C Bb

I gave my golden thing a gold wedding ring

C

And the both of us said I do

C Bb

When the sun's going down on the prairie

C

And the gold in her hair is aflame

C Bb

I say do you really love me Mary

C

And I hold her and I whisper her name

F C

Do you think that you could love me Mary

F D# F

Do you think we got a chance of a life

C Bb

Do you think that you could love me Mary

Bb C

Now you are to be my wife
