Prairie Wedding (Mark Knopfler)

LYRICS

We only knew each other 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
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 a hold of my mind

Think you could love me Mary
Think we got a chance of a life
Do you think you could love me Mary
Now you are to be my wife

We finally headed out of the station
And we drove up the home trail
And when we came on 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

Think you could love me Mary
Think we got a chance of a life
Do you think 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

When the sun’s going down on the prairie
And the gold in her hair is aflame
I say do you really love me Mary and
I hold her and I whisper her name

Do you think you could love me Mary
Think we got a chance of a life
Do you think you could love me Mary
Now you are to be my wife

SMS or WHATSAPP? One for those with good sound set-up's!!  :wave
Had this feedback on AMIT TV regarding a recording "glitch" @ 02:15!

I only can add to all the good comments. But just one thing: part of the magic spoilt when soemone at the studio (2:15) receives a whatsapp, you can hear the "bip-bip" Well, back in 2000 should be an SMS... Anyway, great as always MK
