This song is by Emitt Rhodes and appears on the album The American Dream (1970).

Rhodes

Well, give my regards to your father and tell him he's a stubborn old man
And give all my love to Mary, Mary will you take my hand?
Give my best to your mother, she's the only one who understands
And give all my love to Mary, Mary will you take my hand?

With a smile as bright as the sun
She makes you feel good when the day's begun
She makes you feel good when the day is done
Mary will you take my hand?
Oh, Mary will you take my hand?

Well, I went into the city and I bought a white bouquet
And I gave it to my lovin' Mary, gonna wear it on our wedding day
Well, we'll build a little cottage and we'll have a child or two
Just me and my lovin' Mary laughing the whole day through.

With a smile as bright as the sun
She makes you feel good when the day's begun
She makes you feel good when the day is done
Mary will you take my hand?
Oh, Mary will you take my hand?

With a smile as bright as the sun
She makes you feel good when the day's begun
She makes you feel good when the day is done
Mary will you take my hand?
Oh, Mary will you take my hand?

Well, your father doesn't like me but your mother thinks I'm kind of nice
And if my Mary loves me then everything will be all right
So tell your older sister that she's gonna be my bride
And love me forever only for the rest of her life.

With a smile as bright as the sun
She makes you feel good when the day's begun
She makes you feel good when the day is done
Mary will you take my hand?
Oh, Mary will you take my hand?
