Take A Message To Mary Lyrics

Artist: The Everly Brothers


These are the words of a frontier lad
Who lost his love when he turned ba-ad

Take a message to Mary but don't tell â'er where I am
Take a message to Mary but don't say I'm in a jam
You can tell her I had to see the world or tell â'er that my ship set sail
You can say she better not wait for me but don't tell her I'm in jail
Oh, don't tell her I'm in jail

Take a message to Mary but don't tell â'er what I've done
Please don't mention the stagecoach and the shot from a careless gun
You can tell her I had to change my plans and cancel out the wedding day
But please don't mention my lonely cell where I'm gonna pine away
Until my dying day

Take a message to Mary but don't tell â'er all you know
My heart's achin' for Mary, Lord knows I miss her so
Just tell her I went to Timbuktu, tell her I'm searchin' for gold
You can say she better find someone new to cherish and to hold
Oh, Lord, this cell is cold

Ma-ary, Ma-a-a-a-ary
Oh, Lord this cell is cold

My favorite Everly Brothers song is Take a message to Mary.It ROCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!It is sad yet powerful,why don't people listen to oldies,they might find some good songs instead of the junk they listen to these days.I always sing that wonderful song in my head over, sometimes I can't concentrate on what's going on.I really hope I will be able to download it to my (soon-to-be)ipod which I would play over and over until I get tired of it (which will never happen).I am going to try and write down all the Lryics so I would know the songs be heart,down to everly little puntucation mark.(Yep.)

A love story gone wrong. I wonder if she would have forgiven him if he`d let her know.Sad but a good song.

by babatunde alajogun on 9/10/2008 7:11am
the first time i heard the song,i totaly fell in love with the lyrics,i believe the song will definately last till eternity.it is a kind of song that takes you to the deepest level of meditation about love and when you have to part unexpectly with someone you truly love.
by jasmine ezekwe on 9/10/2008 7:16am

It sound nice and cool, no morning without listening to it. Very Heart touching and good for a heartfelt experience. Love it so much. Am taking the message as you said.
by Thomas Jenkins on 12/17/2008 9:42pm
I'm only 20 years old and I've seen these guys twice. Some of the best music in history came from this era (granted most of it is quite sad and depressing but I love that kind of music. It makes me feel happy inside that I am so lucky to have a wife that I love and who loves me back) People should ALWAYS listen to the oldies
by Dare oyewo on 1/4/2009 8:41am
i've always loved this song but never knew all the lyrics.makes you realise that when you love someone you really 've got to be careful so you don't make "careless" mistakes that will separate you from them and break their hearts.

I love this song because my mum used to sing it as a lullaby to get me and my brothers to sleep when we were little. I now sing it to my little baby and it gets him off to sleep every time. I wanted to check out the lyrics as I could only remember the first verse - now I can sing the whole song.
by ADODO FRIDAY BENSON on 3/11/2009 9:17pm

by Daniel Mensah on 6/4/2009 5:33pm
Ilove country music and Kenny Rogers is one guy I've listened to most. And I can tell you one thing for a fact. though the story of this song is very simple the way it was sung gave it a different meaning. this is one of the very best I've heard.
by chinedu olisa on 6/7/2009 5:21pm

One for the old man."Dad" May he RIP
by Emeka Zeal on 10/25/2009 5:56pm
I came across this song sometime 1987 when i was very young, i never knew i'ld ever listen to it again until 1993 when i was searching my dads archive, i played it often and on but never learnt the lyrics till this blessed day. I was playing the music but never knew what's all about,now i've known,my bones has gone weak. I'm so down, feeling for Mary the poor bride.
by cheruiyot korir on 11/2/2009 6:00am
it is a testament of the mystery of desire to love and be loved

This song stand the taste of time. It cut across every racial and age barrier. It is a song that need to be sung
by Adel eke M. on 12/31/2009 10:12am
I'm a country music lover/addict. I so much like this particular album 'take a message to Mary'. It's sonorous!

What do I do or what do I sing for my only lover who deserted me for years, we met again, came back to normal and yet she chose not to talk to me on phone and e-mail.

Maybe I'll ring for her "ain't go marry in the fall" by Don Williams.
My e-mail address is: babbie_grl@yahoo.com

This is one of my favourit songs off the Everly Brothers. It's from the good old sixties.
by Fabian Chidozie (dozick@yahoo.com) on 1/18/2010 12:07am
I am a music lover due to its meaningfulness, and also a music hater due to its meaninglessness. I so much love listening to the meaning of the music as well as to its air before rating the music. I got this music "take a message to mary" when I was searching for musics to select for my phone. About 95% of musics I found, I discarded, but immediately I got this music "take a message to mary", it was another thing, very interesting, meaningful and heart touching. I therefore fell in love with it right away. I would like to learn more about these guys.
by Calista on 1/22/2010 6:21am
I was very shocked when i first listen to this song take a message to mary on a friend's phone. it opened my eye for our societal selection of a love one
by sunny obawumi on 2/2/2010 3:54am
Each time i listen to this song, honestly it kept keeping me on the edges of my seat...more&more grease to the Writers elbow!!!!

i can't remember the last time i heard this song...i told my sister that the last time i listened to it, it was my mum that sang it to me when i was young.When my sister played it, i knew i needed the lyric...it has always been within inside and it feels me with emotions whenever i sing it...
by Martins Paul on 7/16/2010 8:47am
This music (take a message to Mary)makes me go gaga for Everly Brothers. also, it kilters my memory and makes this decaying Earth more worth living.
I can kill for being deprived of listening to this music!
by Emma on 7/30/2010 1:44am

by EDWARD on 8/13/2010 5:30am
Each time I listen to this song, It remind me of my first roommate at the University and the good times we had then.
by Amuche on 8/13/2010 5:37pm
sometimes you just need to settle and concentrate for you to really absorb the harmony of this wonderful song. I don't think I've heard other songs by the everly brothers but this one ROCKS!!!!!!!!!
by Samuel on 8/23/2010 5:15pm
I've been searching for Mary ever since I read this message. Unfortunately I've not been able to see her. Please who knows where to find this pretty Mary? I need to take this message to her. What an intelligent work that keeps the boby and soul together. Keep it up the Everly's
by Uche/cy on 9/13/2010 5:11am

by mimi on 10/7/2010 5:53am
i like the country music flow but mehn... this song is SAD.
by gatts on 10/15/2010 11:04am
its one sad story but beautifully executed.beautiful song.
by Emma W Gichuhi on 10/17/2010 4:45am
Words talk of a man who is hurting- not for his own pain, but for Marys having let her down. It reeks of his love for her but at the same time aknowledging that her happiness is paramount. He feels terrible that he shall not marry her.
by BUBU on 10/21/2010 4:57am
As i child i wondered who Mary was, but now i know and understand. Better than what i hear these days. Love was pure, modest, honest, wanting to give and die for. Pray you find someone to love you this way.
by Ngozi on 12/5/2010 12:38pm
I was just singing Take a message to Mary while cooking, and it occured to me to check the web for the name of the group which i had forgotten. Oldies really are everlasting because they sang from the heart and from deep inspiration. And we get deeply inspired when we listen to them.
by Suzy on 12/26/2010 8:06pm
I remember when this song first played on the radio. I was very young but understood the pain of the words. They made me feel the hopelessness of the prisoner and his loss of Mary. The Everly Brothers have always had such amazing harmony and I don't think anyone else could have sung this song so beautifully.
by princess on 1/16/2011 5:30pm
this music gives me hope to believe that there is still real love out there. O Mary, lucky u. but its truly sad to loose such genuine love.

by divine agada on 3/23/2011 4:41pm
i call it 'song of the mind'...oh god! the song kills me softly. No one loves Don and phil everly(everly brothers) like i do. God bless 'em and long live their voices.

by Morow Henry on 8/10/2011 7:16pm
This seem2b an old song, but i just heard it few days ago, cuz i don't listen to soul music. I can imagine the man's feeling, and the outcome. Good song, i think is time i start listenin to songs lik this.
by Abdul lateef momodu on 8/12/2011 9:20am
It's a heart pausing song that turn's you wright when u're about doing wrong in your love life and i don't think there will ever be a love song with a lasting memory like this again.good song,great artists
by Azuka on 8/19/2011 6:22pm
Wonderful song that makes you want to cry. But is this a Nigerian site? Why are there so many Nigerian comments here? Did Everly Brothers have their head office in Lagos? Lol!
by Bisi Olaopa lshola on 8/21/2011 4:31am
'Everly brothers' -there's a calm and serene feelings whenever l listen to your songs.This particular song makes me cry when l listen to it but l have a question.Many of your songs are sad songs.Why?l love u two so much.After u leave,u shal be 'legend'.
by Olawale on 8/21/2011 1:37pm
I really love the music. Its a nice one.

the song reminds me of my friend always............
by AmuluOkolie Stella on 9/4/2011 6:20pm
The song is as ageless as love itself. You can feel palpable genuine love both from the lyrics and the tone of the song. It is soothing though sad. I like it.
by Sonsiama on 9/6/2011 2:44pm
Wow!! As always. The message will be carried to the many Marys' out there, whose spouses end up in jam as they struggle in the front line of daily necessities to bring love home. Marys' please understand that we are sometimes in jam while, we try to be men.
by Uche Kelechi on 9/17/2011 4:07pm
I love this music, the content is fantastic and always makes me want 2 cry 4 both mary and the man thanks Everly Brothers
by Chioma on 9/18/2011 12:15pm
No word describes this song better than beautiful. It is deeply, achingly beautiful. I fell in love with it the first time I heard it. It's an evergreen classic.
by Fredrick Nato Wekesa on 10/1/2011 11:01pm
The song takes me back to the times when I was studying the Bible with sister Edel Mbwanga (a Witness of Jehovah.) She used to play the song and I liked it since then. I regularly tune it with my guitah when I run out of sleep. It will remain a monument for those sweet days that I still cherish.
by Neyodike on 10/10/2011 5:52am

Powerful thoughts in few lines. Rare inspirations in one's lifetime. It only gets better with the running decades. Powerful lyrics with great symphony resonating with the melody of simple voices. A qualitative work is never destroyed but refined by time.
by Phil Sodje on 11/4/2011 6:37am
wel done my namesake phil and don everly. What a music! D 1st day i heard it on a Delta radio station i fell in love. Too sad but lovely and heart touching thanks google 4 getting us d lyrics.

I feel so cheated for just knowing this song, this is the kind of song my mom should have sang for me since when i was little. The first day i heard the song i was so weak, i was ready to repent even though am not a bad boy. I wish this group would never stop singing.

I shed tears the first time I heard the song "Take a message to Mary" by Everly brothers in February 2011 from a friend's phone. I downloaded it immediately to my phone & whenever I listen to it, I get moved & touched by the message. Good song by Everly brothers!

How can i deliver dis message to Mary...? What a sad song!!!
by Felix Chika Ehiemere on 1/6/2012 10:30pm
A love song wit a sad lyrical content.
I heard dis song when i was a child wit a little understanding of wat d song meant, but i could feel very strong emotions coming from dis song @ dat young age...i heard it abt twice on radio, but waited this long at age 26 to download, listen and ponder on this words.
Sometimes i wonder what happened to mary afterwards.
This is a story of two love birds who had things going for them smoothly until an accidental discharge tore their journey of love apart.
Oh! Wat a loss!
A tragedic love story, one that ended on sad note "Take a message to Mary"...An ever green song!
by Joshua Alabi on 1/18/2012 11:03am
I never get tired of it. Very simple lyrics and tune.
by Ugochi on 1/19/2012 6:58am
He must have been a good lad to even think of taking a message to Mary. What of the guy that left me, even without looking back.
by Jane-Francis U on 1/19/2012 7:28am
This song makes me feel lonely at heart.

I heard this song when I was very young, though I didn't understand the meaning neither did I know the lyrics but I always feel a deep sense of sadness even as little as I was! I didn't get to understand d lyrics until today and boy! aren't I grateful? I downloaded the song into my phone and I'll play it for d one I love today cos it's his birthday and the song was his late mum's favourite song. What a song! Leaving you with so many 'what ifs', 'I wish' and 'whys'. My best song any day!!
by Morenikeji johnson on 2/27/2012 1:11am

by John besii on 8/25/2012 1:45pm
I've heard of this song some where before on a radio but it didn't really draw my attention cos i hardly understand d lyric. Today i got to listen to it again n straight away downloaded. I admire the imaginary n creativity lines. No doubt its one of d best n ppl will kp luving it. D lyric suggest dat d person is truthful n has genuinely repented from being bad. Now Mary must forgive him though ter is no hint dat she has discarded him as such. Shud bail him out or patiently wait for his term n live happily cos life never ends where it seems.

What a song! Makes me fell that one always cherish love when you have lost it & have no hope of getting it back.
by Peace Sunday on 12/21/2012 10:21pm
I wonder how many 'Mary' out there would ever have the privilege of receiving such a letter or even a phone call from their frontier lads atleast to knw what is going on. No woman ever wishes to be in 'Mary's' shoe. Its so sad to loose the one you love and even more sad to know that there is really nothing you can do to help... I feel sad not only because of your absence but because of the poor, cold, dirty and lonely cell where you are going to pine away...i wish i could undo this! I really wish i can help alleviate ur loneliness and discomfort. (Just keep believing...surely ur life won't end there. I will sing this song daily till u r out. Whatever d case maybe...always remember that I LOVE YOU)
by Harrie musonye on 12/25/2012 9:00pm
The song reminds me of my younger days how we could gather around my dad's only radio in the evening and listen to sundowners (radio programm on kbc radio-Kenya) i loved the song even though didn't get the words better. Now i know it well.

It is a message from a broken heart to a woman who was in luv, a woman looking foreward to wearing her wedding gown suddenly her dreams became a total nightmere. It a song of shame, disappointment and heartbreak. I pray it never happened to me.

by Onwuka Uchendu on 2/8/2013 7:44pm
This song takes me back to memory Lane during my school days in the Sixties at Enugu, Nigeria. We used to classify the song as a "Sentimental". That was a local classification for American/European Love songs. This song sprung back to my consciousness when "Timbuktu" came into the news recently. I live in the US now, but this song reminds me of my youth, my childhood friends(girls), and the good old days living in Africa. Long live the Everly Brothers. "Take a message to Mary" is indeed an immortal song.

OH MY GOD! I LOVE THIS MASTER PIERCE OF MISIC ART. WAT A SOUL TOUCHING MESSAGE, WELL ARRANGED BUT LEAVING ENOUGH ROOM FOR A LISTENER FIGURE OUT WHAT A SINGER WITHHELD TO HIMSELF (WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO MARY HAD SHE RECEIVED THE MESSAGE). I LISTENED TO THIS SONG FOR THE FIRST TIME WHILST IN A FOREIGN LAND ON A MILITARY MISSION WHERE LOVERS LOST THEIR PARTNERS. I WAS SO TOUCHED & DEPRESSED EVER SINCE THEN THE SONG IS MY ANTHEM.

I first heard this song when I was a little boy growing back then in Liberia. Since then I've loved the song. It brings back old memories. Thanks to the original producers.

i love country music so much that i always fall in love with the lyrics when ever a country is been sung but 'take a message to marry' is country music that i found very hard to forget. it makes me feel relaxed whenever i have a little problem with my old dates and probably think of how to get a new aquintance. i am in love with this particular trck!!!!!!!!!!

SAD AND HEARTBREAKING
The frontier lad in d story so much love Mary dat he was willing to make her believe he abandoned her for adventures n wealth(...my ship set sail' n 'I am in search for gold...') rather than let her know he was in a jam, pining away in a cold n lonely cell as a result of an unfortunate accident(...a shot frm a careless gun...). Why did he do dat? Jst to make Mary to forget him n move on with her life.
I can't help but wondered what would Mary have done if he had let her known d truth? Would she have forgiven him n love him till her dying days jst as he would her??
It would have been better if he had let her known d truth n then decides for herself whether to seek a new one to cherish n hold or to love him till her dying days rather than letting her think ill of him.
In all,d song "Take A Message To Mary" is powerful n calls for sober reflection.

Beautiful song. Nice, touching and sad.Question is: was this.lad so poor he couldn't afford money to marry her, so he went robbing to get the money, marry her and give her the good things of life? If yes, what a sacrifice for love, what a price to pay.for.something so elusive. Was it whorth it all?

I love music so much that I will always like to imagine what pushes artist to write. since I listened to this song, I ve not laid my hands on the reasons behind the lyrics. I love the song a lot but never wish to be in the shoes of the writer

It rmind me of my late brother may ur sould rest in perfect peace amem. Til we meet again.

Take a message to marry, what a wonderful song the lyrics is superb, meaningful and educative, it touches my soul, spirit, and body it shows what love is, this song will last for ever, the first time i listen to this music i was shedding tears i don't know how water started coming from my eyes i feel so bad, worried about both lovers . The writer of this song has done a good job.
