OPENER

Circle left
Mary Ann regrets, she's unable to see you tonight
Left allemande the corner, do a dosado
Left allemande and weave the ring
Wind in and out around you go
Meet your girl, swing and promenade
Goodbye true love
Goodbye my sweet Mary Ann


FIGURE

Dosado one time
Swing thru, spin the top

Square thru 3 hands, your corner
Swing and promenade
Goodbye true love
Goodbye my sweet Mary Ann

Join hands and circle left

Wind in and out, I'll meet her there
Meet your girl, swing and promenade
Goodbye true love
Goodbye my sweet Mary Ann

Go right, go left the boys star
Shoot that star, go forward two, go right and left then

Goodbye my sweet Mary Ann

Mary Ann Regrets
 
 

I saved up my money to buy my sweetheart some flowers
For Saturday's date and I restlessly counted the hours
Then today in the mail I received this short little note
And I broke down inside at the message that her mother wrote

"Mary Ann regrets she's unable to see you again
We're leaving for Europe next week, she'll be busy till then"
They know that she loves me, but poor boys don't fit in their plan
Good-bye true love, good-bye my sweet Mary Ann

The weeks have gone by, not a word have I heard since then
In the papers I read of the far-away places she's been
I can't eat, I can't sleep for over and over again
My mind reads that letter and I cry for my Mary Ann

"Mary Ann regrets she's unable to see you again
We're leaving for Europe next week, she'll be busy till then"
They know that she loves me, but poor boys don't fit in their plan
Good-bye true love, good-bye my sweet Mary Ann

My Mary Ann died, 'tis said she just wasted away
If I could have seen her I know she'd be living today
For we loved each other and if they'd have left us alone
Today she'd be wearing my ring, not a blanket of stone

"Mary Ann regrets she's unable to see you again
We're leaving for Europe next week, she'll be busy till then"
They knew that she loved me, but poor boys don't fit in their plan
Good-bye true love, good-bye my sweet Mary-Ann

Lyrics by Harlan Howard.
