By Ricky Nelson - 1958

Transcribed by Gary Wahlgren

Redondo Beach, CA

Note: This was Ricky's first number one single

I worked this out off his "All My Best" CD

Play in G, capo at 4th fret

Intro: G Em Am D7

G Em Am D7


Verse 1

G Em

I used to play around with hearts

Am D7

Hasten to my call,

G Em

When I met that little girl,

Am D7

I knew that I would fall


G Em

Poor little fool, Oh yea,

Am D7 G

I was a fool, Uh huh

(Uh huh, poor little fool,I was a fool, oh yea)

Verse 2

She played around and teased me,

With a carefree devil eye

She pulled me close and kissed me,

But her heart was full of lies

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3

She told me that she cared for me,

And that we'd never part

So for the very first time,

I gave away my heart

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4

Next day she was gone and I,

Knew she lied to me

She left me with a broken heart,

Won her victory

Repeat Chorus

Verse 5

I played this game with other hearts,

But I never thought I'd see

The day when someone else would play

love's foolish game with me

Repeat Chorus
