Marylou

Written by Sam Ling/Obie Jessie

Em
I'm going to tell you a story 'bout  Marylou
You know the kind of a woman make a fool out of you
She make a young man old and a rich man lame
The way she took my money is a cry-in-shame
Em
Marylou..
            C
She took my diamond ring
    Em
Marylou..
            C
She took my watch and chain
Em
She took my keys to my Cadillac car
Am                                     Em
Jumped in my kitty and she drove a-far
Em
Left me stranded in  Kalamazoo
Makin' a fortune off a fool like you
Found her a rich man,  had a dozen kids
Drove that cat until he flipped his lid
Marylou..
            C
She took my diamond ring
    Em
Marylou..
            C
She took my watch and chain
Em
She took my keys to my Cadillac car
Am                                      Em
Jumped in my kitty and she drove a-far
Em
Marylou..
SOLO
Em
I'm gonna tell you a story 'bout  Marylou
You know the kind of a woman make a fool out of you
She make a young man old and a rich man lame
The way she took my money is a cry-in-shame
Marylou..
            C
She took my diamond ring
    Em
Marylou..
            C
She took my watch and chain
Em
She took my keys to my Cadillac car
Am                                    Em
Jumped in my kitty and she drove a-far
Em
Marylou..
Marylou..
Marylou..
