PRETTY MARY (Traditional - Driftwood) Jimmie Driftwood - 1958 At the foot of yonder mountain There runs a clear stream At the foot of yonder mountain There lives a fair queen She's handsome, she's proper And her ways are complete And I ask no better pastime Than to kneel at her feet Her father don't like me And I understand He's promised Lord Randall Her lily white hand Lord Randall has silver Lord Randall has gold But she'd rather shiver With me in the cold Pretty Mary, pretty Mary I'd give all I own If I had pretty Mary In the moonlight alone Her father declares I shall see her no more Her mother forbids me To knock on her door They've locked her in a strong room Where I've never been And only Lord Randall Is allowed to go in I wish I was an eagle Like an eagle I'd fly I'd fly over the ocean And the mountains tops high I'd fly to her window With a wild eagle scream And take my pretty Mary To the land of my dreams Pretty Mary, pretty Mary I'd give all I own If I had Pretty Mary In the moonlight alone I'd take her to a cabin On a mountain top wild And care for Pretty Mary Like she was my child I'd fight the Lord Randall If he ever came nie For the love of pretty Mary I gladly would die Pretty Mary, pretty Mary I'd give all I own If I had Pretty Mary In a home of my own (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen & Mel Priddle - December 2005)
