Hal Ketchum - I Miss My Mary



Intro - G


(verse 1)
               Cadd9   
A threadbare alibi,
                     G
A lifetime full of promise,
                         
Fell from my Mary's eyes, 
                             D
As she saw the screen door swing,
    Cadd9       G   
The baby never woke, 
         Em7         Cadd9   G
He lay cradled in her trembling,
                        Cadd9     
He lay safe and never knowing, 
         D              G
What my leaving would bring,


(verse 2)
                           Cadd9      
I draw my pay down on the docks,
                  G
I send it off to Mary,
                            
I might hold back a dollar, 
                              D
And wash this pain out of my back,
         Cadd9                G     
But the pain keeps gettin' clearer, 
               Em7              Cadd9 G
And Mary your face just keeps on fad-in,
                                   C       
Now the light shines through this bottle,
     D                 G
Memories all fade to black,


(chorus)
                Cadd9
Well, I'll see you out on the street tonight,
            G 
I'm a lover of a drink, lover of a fight,
    Cadd9                             G
Hold my own on the dark side of this town,
              Cadd9
Yes, I'm tough as nails, got a heart of steel,
             G                          Em7
I will never fear, for I will never feel,
             Cadd9                       D
And one more round would surely set me right,
                     G - Cadd9 - D - Cadd9 - G
I miss my Mary tonight,


(verse 3)
They call me the old man in this bar, 
Sleeves rolled up and showin,
Faint blue souvenirs of love and places I have been,
One says, U.S. Navy and this one says, Darling Mary,
Now my Mary's turned to ashes, 
And the ocean's turned to gin,


(chorus)
                Cadd9
Well, I'll see you out on the street tonight,
            G 
I'm a lover of a drink, lover of a fight,
    Cadd9                             G
Hold my own on the dark side of this town,
              Cadd9
Yes, I'm tough as nails, got a heart of steel,
             G                          Em7
I will never fear, for I will never feel,
             Cadd9                       D
And one more round would surely set me right,
                     G - Cadd9 - D - Cadd9 - G
I miss my Mary tonight,
