Note: This song is in the key of G, the chorus starts with a D7 chord.
I have some -thing on my mind that I've just got to say,
Mar - y Lou,  Mar - y Lou.
Just the same old sto - ry in the same old - fash - ioned way,
Mar - y Lou,  List - en, do!
Mar - y Lou,  Mar - y Lou,
Cross my heart I love you!
Ev - 'ry bell in the steep - le is read - y to ring,
And all the peo - ple are plan - ning pret - ty pres - ents
All for you,  Mar - y Lou,
Won't you give your prom - ise true?
Why for miles a - round they're wait - ing to start their cel - e - brat - ing,
when you say "I do",  Mar - y Lou!
