GARDEN PARTY  Ricky Nelson

[1972]Transcribed by Gary Wahlgren
Redondo Beach, Ca.
Verse 1
I w[C]ent to a garden pa[F]rty to remin[C]isce with my old fr[F]iends.
A c[C]hance to share o[G]ld mem[Am]ories a[F]nd play our old [G7]songs a[C]gain.
When I got to the garden p[F]arty, t[C]hey all knew my n[F]ame,
But [C]no one recogn[F]ized me[Dm7]..., I didn't [G7]look the [C]same.
CHORUS:
But it's..[F]., all r[G]ight n[C]ow. I l[F]earned my l[G]esson w[C]ell.
You see you.[F]., can't please e[C]veryone, so you [Dm7]got to pl[G7]ease yours[C]elf.
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]..La, [G]la, l[C]a.....la  [F]la  la  l[G]a la   [C]la[F] [C] [Dm7] [G7] [C]
