Mark Knopfler - Prairie Wedding

We only knew eachoter by letter

I went to meet her off the train

When the smoke had cleared and the dust was still

She was standing there and speaking my name

I guarantee she looked like an angel

I couldn`t think of what I should say

But when Adam saw Eve in the garden

I believe he felt the selfsame way

I handed her up on the wagon

And I loaded up her trunk behind

She was sitting up there with the gold in her hair

And I tried to get hold of my mind

Do you think that you could love me Mary

Do you think we got a chance of a life

Do you think that you could love me Mary

Now you are to be my wife

We finally headed out of the station

And we drove up to the home trail

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

I thought my resolution would fail

And I froze as she stepped in the doorway

Stood there as still as could be

I said I know it ain`t much, it needs a woman`s touch

Lord she turned around and looked at me

Do you think that you could love me Mary

You think we got a chance of a life

Do you think that you could love me Mary

Now you are to be my wife

We had a prairie wedding

There was a preacher and a neighbour or two

I gave my golden thing a gold wedding ring

And the both of us said I do

And when the sun`s going down on the prairie

And the gold in her hair is aflame

I say do you really love my Mary

And I hold her and I whisper her name

Do you think that you could love me Mary

You think we got a chance of a life

Do you think that you could love me Mary

Now you are to be my wife
