Garden Party-crd  Ricky Nelson

C ----  F ----  Am7 --  G ----

I [C]went to a garden par[F]ty
To remi[C]nisce with my old [F]friends
A [C]chance to share old [Am7]memories
[F]And play our [G]songs again[C]
When I [C]got to the garden par[F]ty
[C]They all knew my [F]name
But [C]no one recogn[Am7]ised me
[F]I didn't [G]look the same[C]
    But it's [F]all [G]right [C]now [Am7]
    I [F]learned my [G]lesson [C]well
    You see you [F]can't please [C]ev'ryone
    So you [F]have got to [G]please yourself [C]
People came from miles around
Everyone was there
Yoko brought a walrus
There was magic in the air
And over in the corner
Much to my surprise
Mister Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes
Wearin' his disquise

Played them all the old songs
Thought that's why they came
No one heard the music
We didn't look the same
I said hello to Marylou
She belongs to me
And I sang a song about a honkytonk
It was time to leave

Someone opened up the closet door
And out stepped Johnny B. Goode
Playing guitar like a ringin" a bell
And looking like he should
If you gotta play garden parties
I wish you a lot of luck
But if memories were all I sang
I'd rather drive a truck
