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            A/G
he had her books in hand and he was listening to every word she said

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

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

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

    G             A/G
and try a little tenderness

D - G - G/F# - Em7 x2

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

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

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

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


         D     Em7      G    G/A 
He said, mary, marry me.

                  D     Em7      G    G/A          
we could live out by the sea

                  D     Em7      G    G/A  
like the do on the movie screen.

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

D - G - G/F# - Em7 x2

And then back to the verse. Continue throughout. Lovely song, you can listen to it on
his website, his CDs are a bit hard to come by, especially over here. Comments welcome

If you could tab out the full song with lyrics and chords, that would be awesome. I've been trying to figure it out, but nothing quite sounds right (I've been sticking to you chords and patterns. I just can't get it -_-)
