Intro - D - G - G/F# - Em7 x2



D                        G   G/F#   Em7
It was a fine day in the fifth grade

D                  G    G/F#   Em7
when Mary May let Bobby walk her home from school

D                                    G    G/F#   Em7            A7sus4
he had her books in hand and he was listening to every word she said

                D             G   G/F#    Em7    A7sus4
like it was the gospel of the prophecies

       Em7               G/F#         G        A7sus4
and he loved the way her hair fell across her dress

                   Em7                  G/F#
went home singing who wrote the book of love

    G             A7sus4
and try a little tenderness



D - G - G/F# - Em7 x2



D                   G        G/F#
the next day on the playground 

Em7       A7sus4              D                   G   G/F#   Em7  A7sus4
bobby sat Mary down on the swingset behind the sandbox

              Em7          G/F#  G     A7sus4
and she said, Bobby i just wanna play

   Em7            G/F#    G     A7sus4
so what is it you have to say?



Chorus:

         D     Em7      G    A7sus4 
He said, mary, marry me.

                  D     Em7      G    A7sus4          
we could live out by the sea

                   D     Em7      G    A7sus4  
like they do on the movie screen.

      D        Em7      G             A7sus4  
oh, marry me, mary may, before you go back to play 



D - G - G/F# - Em7 x2



         D        G   G/F#  Em7
It was graduation day.
           D           G        G/F#     Em7    A7sus4
They were waiting on a plane to take Mary away.
                D                 G   G/F#   Em7  A7sus4
Said, "There's nothing left for me here but you.
         Em7               G/F#           G      A7sus4
Bobby, I hope that you can find yourself through.
         D             G      G/F#  Em7  A7sus4
There's so much that I wish to know,
      D               G     G/F#   Em7  A7sus4
and I have to do this on my own
      D                  G     G/F#  Em7  A7sus4
and I hope that you can understand.
        Em7               G/F#    G    A7sus4
Bobby, write me when you can.



           D                   G   G/F#  Em7
He said, "Take my high school ring,
    A7sus4              D               G   G/F#  Em7  A7sus4
so time to time now you can think of me
     Em7                  G/F#  G          A7sus4
and there's just one more thing before you leave..."



         D     Em7      G    A7sus4 
He said, mary, marry me.

                  D     Em7      G    A7sus4          
we could live out by the sea

                   D     Em7      G    A7sus4  
like they do on the movie screen.

      D        Em7      G             A7sus4  
oh, marry me, mary may, before you up and fly away



D - G - G/F# - Em7 - A7sus4 x3
D - G - G/F# - Em7 (keep strumming Em7 for A couple more beats)



         D               G  G/F#  Em7   
There's so much time has passed since that day
    D                    G  G/F#  Em7     
and Mary stopped writing years ago
     D                     G    G/F#   Em7   
and Bobby never took his music on the road.
          D            G   G/F#  Em7
Guess he never really gave up hope.
    D               G      G/F#      Em7          A7sus4
Now Mary she's got everything she thought she wanted
      D                G    G/F#    Em7      A7sus4
got a Ph.D., she is an independent business woman
         D                 G   G/F#
climbing up the corporate ladder
        Em7                    A7sus4
though it really don't seem to matter,
        D           G  G/F#   Em7  A7sus4
she is lonely beyond belief.
    Em7              G/F#    G
So one day she went home
         A7sus4         Em7             G/F#    G   A7sus4 (strum A couple of times)
looking for the only love she'd ever known.



     D              G   G/F#  Em7
She found him once again,
                         D           G   G/F#   Em7
playing a circuit at the Holiday Inn,
                   A7sus4           D          G  G/F#
still singing the song about the one he lost 
Em7
long ago.
      A7sus4                 D       G   G/F#   Em7  A7sus4
Just goes to show, you never know.



    Em7              G/F#     G
She took his hand in hers
     A7sus4        Em7                G/F#    G   A7sus4 
not everything she had planned and rehearsed.



           D       Em7      G
She said, "Bobby, marry me.
A7sus4                D                         Em7           G
We could live in a apartment building with a window view.
A7sus4              D              Em7
We could take in movies on the weekend
     G              A7sus4
while planning our vacation.
       D                 Em7
Take a honeymoon by the sea.
   G                 A7sus4             D   G   G/F#  Em7
Oh Bobby, won't you just marry me?
               A7sus4         D   G   G/F#  Em7
Won't you just marry me?
            A7sus4           D  G  G/F#   Em7  A7sus4
Oh please, marry me."



D - G - G/F# - Em7 (keep strumming Em7 for A couple more beats)



D                        G   G/F#   Em7
It was a fine day in the fifth grade

D                  G    G/F#   Em7
when Mary May let Bobby walk her home from school
