Prairie wedding

We only knew each other by letter
I went to meet her off the train
When the smoke had cleared and the dust was still
She was standing there and speaking my name
I guarantee she looked like an angel
I couldn't think of what I should say
But when Adam saw Eve in the garden
I believe he felt the selfsame way

I handed her up on the wagon
And I loaded up her trunk behind
She was sitting 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
Do 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 finally headed out of the station
And we drove up the home trail
And when we came on the farm she laid a hand on my arm
I thought my resolution would fail
And I froze as she stepped in the doorway
Stood there as still as could be
I said I know it ain't much, it needs a woman's touch
Lord she turned around and looked at me

Do you think that you could love me Mary
Do 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 neighbour or two
I gave my golden thing a gold wedding ring
And the both of us said I do
And when the sun's going down on the prairie
And the gold in her hair is aflame
I say do you really love me Mary
And I hold her and I whisper her name

Do you think that you could love me Mary
Do 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

 

BODA DE LA PRADERA  

Solo nos conociamos por carta
Fui a conocerla cuando saliera del tren
Cuando el humo desaparecio y el polvo quedo en reposo
Alli estaba de pie diciendo mi nombre
Garantizo que parecia un angel
No podia pensar en lo que deberia decir
 Pero cuando Adan vio a Eva en el jardin (paraiso)
Creo que se sintio de la misma manera

La ayude a subir al anden
Y puse su baul detras
Estaba ahi sentada con el oro en su pelo
Y trate de contener mi mente
 

Crees que podrias amarme Maria
Crees que tenemos la oportunidad de una vida *(juntos)
Crees que podrias amarme Maria
Ahora que vas a ser mi esposa
 

Finalmente salimos de la estacion
Y fuimos por el sendero de la casa
Y cuando llegamos a la granja puso una mano en mi brazo
Crei que mi resolucion fracasaria
Y me quede de piedra cuando ella entro por la puerta
Se quedo alli estando tan tiesa como se podria estar
Dije: se que no es mucho, necesita el toque de una mujer
Seņor se dio la vuelta y me miro

 Crees que podrias amarme Maria
Crees que tenemos la oportunidad de una vida *(juntos)
Crees que podrias amarme Maria
Ahora que vas a ser mi esposa

Tuvimos una boda en la pradera
Hubo un sacerdote y un vecino o dos
Le di a mi dorada una alianza de boda de oro
Y los dos dijimos si quiero
Y cuando el sol se pone en la pradera
Y el oro de su cabello esta en llamas
Le digo: realmente me quieres Maria
Y sujeto su mano y susurro su nombre

 Crees que podrias amarme Maria
Crees que tenemos la oportunidad de una vida *(juntos)
Crees que podrias amarme Maria
Ahora que vas a ser mi esposa
