MARY LOU
(Hawkins - Magill)
RONNIE HAWKINS & THE HAWKS (ROULETTE 4177, 1959)

I'm goin' to tell you a story about Mary Lou
I mean the kind of a woman who makes a fool of you
She makes a young man groan and an old man pain
The way she took my money was a crying shame

(Mary Lou, Mary Lou) She took my diamond ring
(Mary Lou, Mary Lou) She took my watch and chain
(Mary Lou) She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my Kitty and she drove off far

Left me stranded in Kalamazoo
Making her a fortune off a fool like you
She got her a rich man, had a dozen kids
Drove that cat until he flipped his lid

(Mary Lou, Mary Lou) She took my diamond ring
(Mary Lou, Mary Lou) She took my watch and chain
(Mary Lou) She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my Kitty and she drove off far

Well, she come back into town about a week ago
Told me she was sorry that she hurt me so
I had a fifty-five Ford and a two dollar bill
The way she took that, a-man it gave me a chill

(Mary Lou, Mary Lou) She took my diamond ring
(Mary Lou, Mary Lou) She took my watch and chain
(Mary Lou) She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my Kitty and she drove off far
Well, she jumped in my Kitty and she drove off faaaarrrrr
(Ah-hoo, ah-hoo, ah-hoo, ah-hoo, ah-hoo)
