D     D(C# bass)  D (B bass)  D (A bass)  D     D(B bass) D(G bass) D(A bass)
Ooh   Ooh        Ooh         Ooh         Ooh


[Verse 1]

D                  G            D                 G
I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends.

D           D(C# bass)  D(B bass) D(A bass) G            A     D
A chance to share old  memories            and play our songs again.

D                         G     D                G
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name,

    D      D(C# bass)  D(B bass)  D(A bass) G            A     D
but no one recog  -   nized    me,         I didn't look the same


[Chorus]

D         G   A     D    D(B bass)    G          A      D
But it's, all right now.            I learned my lesson well.

             G            D                G      A      D
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.


[Verse 2]

D                G             D            G
People came from miles around. Everyone was there.

D    D(C# bass)   D(B bass) D(A bass)            G    A     D
Yoko brought her walrus.             There was magic in the air.

D               G       D          G
And over in the corner, much to my surprise,

D   D(C# bass)     D(B bass) D(A bass) G       A     D
Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's   shoes     wearing his disguise.


[Chorus]

D         G   A     D    D(B bass)   G          A      D
But it's, all right now.           I learned my lesson well.

             G            D                G      A      D
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

G   A  D    G     A     D        G          D     G  A  D 
Lot da da,  lot n da da da


[Verse 3]

D                     G            D                       G
I played them all the old songs, I thought that's why they came.

D      D(C# bass) D(B bass) D(A bass) G          A       D
No one heard the music,              We didn't look the same.

D                G          D              G
I said hello to "Mary Lou", she belongs to me.

       D      D(C# bass)    D(B bass) D(A bass) G       A     D
When I sang a song about a honky tonk,         it was time to leave.


[Chorus]

D         G   A     D    D(B bass)   G          A      D
But it's, all right now.           I learned my lesson well.

             G            D                G      A      D
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

G   A  D    G     A     D        G         D     G  A  D
Lot da da,  lot n da da da


[Verse 4]

D                     G               D                      G
Someone opened up the closet door and out stepped Johnny B. Goode,

D       D(C# bass)     D(B bass) D(A bass)   G       A      D
Playing guitar like a ringin' a bell    and lookin'like he should.

                            G          D                G
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck

       D   D(C# bass) D(B bass) D(A bass) G          A       D
But if memories were all     I sang,     I'd rather drive a truck.


[Chorus]

D         G   A     D    D(B bass)   G          A      D
But it's, all right now.           I learned my lesson well.

             G            D                G      A      D
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

G   A  D    G     A     D        G       D        G   A   D
Lot da da,  lot n da da da


[Final Chorus]

D         G   A     D    D(B bass)   G          A      D
And it's, all right now.           I learned my lesson well.

             G            D                G      A      D
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

I've looked at all these tabs and no one has this exactly right. You can see in live videos, Nelson and his guitarist play an Em9 A D instead of the more common IV chord G A D on the last phrase of the verse and chorus, i.e. "didn't look the same" and "have to please yourself".

Try it, it breaks up a rather mundane and unoriginal chord pattern with a prettier chord. The band America used to use that chord a lot (such as on the song "Old Virginia", which uses the same Em9 A D phrase).

You can play it prettier, 022032; or easier, 020002 or however you want:
E root / B min 3th / G 5th / D dom7 / F# dom9
