Garden Party Lyrics
I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again.
When I got to the garden party they all knew my name.
No one recognized me, I didnít look the same.
But itís all right now, I learned my lesson well,
You see you canít please everyone, so you got to please yourself.
People came from miles around, everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air
And over in the corner, much to my surprise
Mr. Hughes had Dylanís shoes, weariní his disguise
I played them all the old songs, I thought thatís why they came
No one heard the music, I didnít look the same
I said hello to Mary Lou, she belongs to me
When I sang a song about a honky tonk, it was time to leave
Someone opened up the closet door, and out stepped Johnny B. Goode
Playing guitar like a-ringiní a bell, and lookiní like he should
Now if you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lot of luck
But if memories were all I sang, Iíd rather drive a truck.
