Lyrics

The Lonely Prairie – James Rooney & Bryan O'Ruanaidh © SOCAN 2012
Bm-F#m Bm-F#m Bm-F#m Bm- D-A D-A D-A B#m (8 bars)
Bm
The cold winds of winter - cut loose from their moorings
D A
Rushed down from the north over valley and lea
Bm
The snow like a guardian, spread its white mantle
D A Bm
Over Mountain and Forest and the lonely prai- rie

Bm
It was then that I lost her, my hearts greatest treasure
D A
My love, my Mary was taken from me
Bm
To be laid in her slumber, out there in god’s acre
D A Bm
Near the banks of the river, on the lonely prai- rie

>>>INSTRUMENTAL ~ LEAD BREAK<<<
Bm-F#m Bm-F#m Bm-F#m Bm- D-A D-A D-A B#m (8 bars)
Bm
You will never return here, to the home of your loved ones
D A
Though the angels in mercy will watch over thee
Bm
For a soul pure as thi-ine, must be with its maker
D A Bm
Though your body lies cold in the lonely prai- rie

Bm- F#m
And when on this bleak world my days work is over
I know my sweet Mary, is waiting for me
To guide me above, to that home of Bright Mansions
D- A Bm
reward for the faithful, on the lonely prair - ie
reward for the faithful, on the lonely prair - ie
God’s reward for the faithful, on the lonely prair - ie
