Mary and the little lamb    (video)

 

       D                                      A

1. Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow,

                                                              D

    and everywhere that Mary went the lamb was sure to go.

        D                                                       A

    It followed her most every day and it made the people laugh,

                                                                         D                            A

    you'd never see it work or play, and you'd never see it at the grass.

 

                        G                           A

Oh, there'll be loving a long, long time from now,

            D                    Bm

but it'll be too late for him.

                         G                                      A

Oh, there'll be kissing and hugging and holding tight,

            D                     G

but it'll be too late for him.

               D                                                A

2. Now people tried to talk to him, but it never made no sense,

                                                                          D

    'cause just as they were getting clue it'd be jumping another fence.

           D                                         A

    It'd follow in her footsteps and everywhere she went,

                                                                    D                        A

    it'd see him in there with her, but you'd never be seeing him.

+  G - A - D - Bm     - G - Bm - G - D ~

 

               D                                                            A

3. Now, one dark day a big storm came, and it blew Mary's house away,

                                                                       D

    all the walls had vanished and there was nowhere for Mary to stay.

              D                                                          A

    She cried and cried and looked around, but everything was gone,

                                                     D                             A

    except for that one little lamb, he was still holding on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                        G                           A

Oh, there'll be loving a long, long time from now,

                        D                                     G

but there'll be no one more happy than him,

            Em                                A

'cause every night when the moon shines bright,

                D                        G

she'll be cuddling up with him.

 

                  Em                          A

There'll be loving a long, long time from now,

                        D                                     G

but there'll be no one more happy than him,

            Em                              A

'cause every night when the stars shine bright,

                  D                        G

she'll be snuggling up with him.

 

+  Em - A - D ....
