Hello, Mary Lou

Words & Music:

Ricky Nelson


         G                 C

Well, hello, Mary Lou, and goodbye heart.

G                                  D

Sweet Mary Lou, I'm so in love with you.

  G                    B7           Em

I knew, Mary Lou, we'd never part,

       G                 D             G      C    G

So, hello, Mary Lou, and goodbye heart.


Passed me by one sunny day,

Flashed those big brown eyes my way.

And I knew I wanted you forevermore.

I'm not one who gets around.

Swear my feets stuck on the ground.

Although I never did meet you before.


Saw your lips, I heard your voice.

Believe me, I just had no choice.

Wild horses couldn't make me stay away.

Thought about a moonlit night,

Arms around you good and tight.

And that's all I had to see for me to say.
