My Favorite Western: Prairie Wedding

Not all excellent stories are novels. Some songwriters have an incredible talent to tell a complete story with only a few lyrics. Mark Knopfler is one of the best story tellers out there. He wrote this awesome Western, a song that reminds me of New Mexico. He captures the scenes so perfectly, I can smell the dust and see it settling on her beautiful dress.

Prairie Wedding

We only knew each other by letter
When I met her off of the train.
When the smoke had cleared and the dust was still
She was standing there and speaking my name
Guaranteed she looked like an angel
I couldn’t think of what I should say
When Adam saw Eve in the garden
I believe he felt the same 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
And I tried to get a hold of my mind.

Think you could love me Mary
Think we got a chance of life
Do you think you could love me Mary
Now you oughta 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

Think you could love me Mary
Think we got a chance of life
Do you think you could love me Mary
Now you oughta be my wife

We had a prairie wedding
There was a preacher and a neighbor or two
I gave my golden thing an gold wedding ring
And the both of us said I do
When the sun’s going down on the prairie,
And the gold in her hair is a flame
I say Do you really love me Mary and
I hold her and I whisper her name.

Think you could love me Mary
Think we got a chance of life
Do you think you could love me Mary
Now you oughta be my wife

It’s available by itself on Amazon or as part of the Sailing to Philadelphia album.

  1. I love Mark Knopfler and Dire Straights. He’s a poet and a talented musician. You’ve made me want to hurry off and listen to some of his music, lol.
