Garden Party

By: Rick Nelson 1972 [1]
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
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
C F Dm7 G7 C
But no one recognised me, I didn't look the same
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've got to please yourself
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 
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 
Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped Johnny B Goode 
Playing guitar like a ring and a bell and looking like he should 
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck 
But if memories were all I sang, I rather drive a truck 
F G C F G C F C Dm7 G7 C
..La, la, la la la la la
