Hello Mary Lou
By Rick Nelson (aka Ricky Nelson)
As interpreted by Joe G


Play with a Capo on 2.
Despite its scary name, Amadd11 is actually a really easy chord (XX0210).  It's just 
Dm7 but leave the high E open.
Amadd11/F# is almost as easy, put your thumb on the F# (2X0210)

[Verses]
   G
Hello Mary Lou,
C
Good-bye heart,
      G                            D7/F#  Amadd11/F#
Sweet Mary Lou I'm so in love with you,
  G
I knew Mary Lou,
Bm         Em
We'd never part,
   A          D
So hello Mary Lou,
         G
Good-bye heart!


    G
She passed me by one sunny day,
C
Flashed those big brown eyes my way,
    G                          D7  Amadd11
And oooh, I wanted you forever more,
    G
I'm not one who gets around,
C
Swear my feet stuck to the ground,
    G              D            G
And though I never did meet you before,


G
Hello Mary Lou,
C
Good-bye heart,
      G                            D7/F#  Amadd11/F#
Sweet Mary Lou I'm so in love with you,
  G
I knew Mary Lou,
Bm         Em
We'd never part,
      A       D
So hello Mary Lou,
         G
Good-bye heart!

  G
I saw your lips I heard your voice
  C
Believe me I just had no choice
     G                            D7/F#  Amadd11/F#
Wild horses couldn't make me stay away
  G
I thought about a moonlit night
C
Arms around you good and tight
       G            D             G
That's all I had to see for me to say:

              G            C
"Hey, hey, hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
      G                            D7/F#  Amadd11/F#
Sweet Mary Lou I'm so in love with you!
  G              Bm         Em
I knew Mary Lou, we'd never part
      A       D            G
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart!


        A       D            G
Yes, hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart!
   A       D            G
Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart!"

At the end of the chorus where he sings "So hello Mary Lou goodbye heart"..it should be an A chord over hello and not a G chord....
