Prairie Wedding Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

We only knew each other by a letter
When I met her off the train
When the smoke get cleared and the dust was still
She was standin there an' speakin' my name

Guarantee she looked like an angel
I couldnt think of what I should say
But when Adam saw Eve in the Garden
I believe he felt the self same way

I handed her up on the wagon
And I loaded up her trunk behind
She was sittin up there with the gold in her hair
I tried to get a hold of my mind

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

Finally headed out of the station
We drove up my home trail
And when we came to the farm she laid a hand on my arm
I thought my resolution would fail

Now I froze as she stepped in the doorway
Stood there still as can be
I said "I know aint much, it needs a womans touch"
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 neighbor or two
I gave my golden thing a gold wedding ring
Then the both of us said 'I do'

And when the suns goin down on the prairie
And the gold in her hair is aflame
I say "Do you really love me Mary?"
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
