Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Mary Ann regrets she's unable to see you tonight
Walk around the corner, see saw your own
The men star right...
Left allemande that corner, swing your own and promenade
Goodbye true love, goodbye my sweet Mary Ann


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you promenade, you get about halfway you said
Down the middle and pass the ocean, and then extend
Swing thru and then the boy run right around again
Couples circulate one time, now ferris wheel
Everybody double pass thru, just the leaders trade
Swing that corner, promenade around that way
Goodbye true love, goodbye my sweet Mary Ann


TAG

Goodbye true love, goodbye my sweet Mary Ann

Mary Ann Regrets Lyrics ID: 2853

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.
