GARDEN PARTY
Ricky Nelson
1972
Transcribed by Gary Wahlgren
Redondo Beach, Ca.

Verse 1

   C                 F           C                  F
I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends.
   C               G     Am     F               G7     C
A chance to share old memories and play our old songs again.
                          F      C                F
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name,
    C            F      Dm7           G7       C
But no one recognized me..., I didn't look the same.


CHORUS:
          F       G     C      F          G      C
But it's..., all right now. I learned my lesson well.
            F                C               Dm7      G7        C
You see you.., can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.


Verse 2

People came from miles around. Everyone was there.
Yoko brought her walrus. There was magic in the air.
And over in the corner, much to my surprise,
Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes wearing his disguise.

But it's, all right now. I learned my lesson well.
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

Verse 3

I played them all the old songs, I thought that's why they came.
No one heard the music. We didn't look the same.
I said hello to "Mary Lou", she belongs to me.
When I sang a song about a Honky-Tonk, it was time to leave.

But it's, all right now. I learned my lesson well.
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

Verse 4

Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped Johnny B. Goode,
Playing guitar like a ring and a bell and lookin' like he should.
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta lock,
But if memories were all I sang, I rather drive a truck.

But it's, all right now. I learned my lesson well.
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

F     G    C         F        G      C   F  C  Dm7  G7  C
..La, la, la.....la  la  la  la la   la
