Little Shirley Melrose

Time: 4/4 Key: G

GLittle Shirley Melrose Cdidn’t have no Gelbows
Her Emarms would-a-dangle and Dwobble when she Gwalked
I Gused to see my Shirley Changing from a Gspruce tree
EmTied up real high in a Dsailor's Gknot

CLittle Shirley loved me and GI loved her dearly
EmComing home to Shirley shirley Dwas-a-real Gnice
She'd Gopen up the front door while Cshe was on the Gthird floor
And Empull me up and wrap her arms aDround me Gtwice

GWell old Lester Brownstone Cdidn't have no Gknee bone
He'd Emdrag his legs behind him while he Dwalked on his Ghands
GThings were going smoothly beCtween me and GShirley
'Till Emone day Lester Brownstone Dfoiled my Gplans

CLester was-a-crawlin when the Gtown bridge collapsed
And EmLester was-a-hanging and he Dcouldn't do a Gthing
Then GShirley came a long, Cfound Lester Ghanging on
EmGrabbed him by the hand and she Dgave him a Gswing

Well I Glost my Shirley Melrose to Cold Lester GBrownstone
And I Emdidn't even want to Dlive another Gday
I had my Gmouth on the barrel when I Csaw Mary GCarrol
Had no Emears on her head, so Dwhat can I Gsay

CLittle Shirley loved me and GI loved her dearly
EmComing home to Shirley shirley Dwas-a-real Gnice
She'd Gopen up the front door while Cshe was on the Gthird floor
And Empull me up and wrap her arms aDround me Gtwice
