Ricky Nelson - Hello Mary Lou Lyrics




Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou, I'm so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou, we'd never part
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart

You passed me by one sunny day
Flashed those big brown eyes my way
And oo I wanted you forever more
Now I'm not one that gets around
Swear my feet stuck to the ground
And though I never did meet you before

I said, hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou, I'm so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou, we'd never part
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart

I saw your lips I heard your voice
Believe me I just had no choice
Wild horses couldn't make me stay away
I thought about a moonlit night
My arms about good an' tight
That's all I had to see for me to say

Hey, hey, hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou, I'm so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou, we'd never part
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Yes hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart

Ricky Nelson Hello Mary Lou Comments
  1. Gerwyn Evans

    Great sing-a-long song with brilliant rhythm guitar accompaniment.

  2. Jesus Saldana

    Huh, i shazamed a song and it gave me a different song but I'm mildly pleased this exists. Happy little accidents

  3. George Vreeland Hill

    I came here because I am a Ricky Nelson fan.

  4. Troy Suza

    Taken too soon

  5. Blyss1000

    “Marylou” Stanley waits for you no more goodbye heart in “Heaven”

  6. Ringo_Starr's_Bitch_

    queen brought me here

  7. L. ANGEL LOVE

    JOHNNY B. FAVORITE SONG BUT
    HE WENT OFF ELOPED WITH JESSIE TRAVIS IN 1956

  8. Sam Williams

    I honestly don’t think people give James Burton enough credit for being such an influential lead guitar player. I mean he was doing these intricate complex guitar solos when NOBODY I mean NOBODY else was doing that. I mean when he came into prominence it felt like the lead guitar gods of the late 50’s were gone and were replaced with strings and backup singers and other things that were NOT shredding lead guitar parts

    Mario Saldana

    Sam Williams I think James Burton is a great guitarist, but was that him or was it the “wrecking crew”?

    Sam Williams

    Mario Saldana absolutely without a shadow of a doubt that was James Burton On Guitar. He got hired to play for Ricky because Ricky got sick with working with older Jazz and Country cats who did not understand or appreciate rock and Roll. James was closer to his age so he got the job because of his playing abilities and how much he got that whole genre and he really perfectly complimented Ricky entirely

  19. Thomas Mirowski

    James Burton is a beast. I remember hearing this when I was five and having shortness of breath and a free-falling feeling in my stomach from his solo. Goodbye heart indeed.

    I love Ricky. Being a teenager in the mid 1950's to early 1960's, I grew up with all the singers mentioned here. Yes Elvis, Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers, Bobby Vee, Gene Pitney, Chuck Berry are many more of my favorites but Ricky will always rank up there with the very best.

    Carmen Gough

    I love Ricky Nelson, when I was young in the 60's black & white, TV, fell in love with his looks, his voice, his songs, his lips, shall never never forget him, so happy we can still play back his songs, on You_tube.

  22. Josh S

    RIP Mary Lou Maloney. Prom Queen

  25. Greg Francis

    HAD THE HONOUR TO SEE RICK WITH HIS BAND IN THE EARLY 80'S,,,JUBILLEE AUDITORIUM,,EDMONTON ALBERTA,,,IT WAS A WONDERFUL CONCERT,,,THEY PLAYED ALL HIS GREAT TUNES AND THE BIGGEST CHEER WAS WHEN HE TOOK HIS JACKET OFF AND TURNED HIS UM SHALL WE SAY BACKSIDE TO THE AUDIENCE,,,THE WOMEN SCREAMED,,,THIS IS THE SAME BAND THAT PERISHED IN THAT AWFUL PLANE CRASH A FEW SHORT YEARS LATER,,,I THINK RICK WAS ONLY 45 YRS. YOUNG,,,GOD BLESS HIM AND THAT GREAT BAND.

    I knew Mary Lou
    We'd never part
    So hello Mary Lou
    Goodbye heart"

    You passed me by one sunny day
    Flashed those big brown eyes my way
    And ooh I wanted you forever more
    Now I'm not one that gets around

    And though I never did meet you before

    I said "hello Mary Lou
    Goodbye heart
    Sweet Mary Lou
    I'm so in love with you

    I knew Mary Lou
    We'd never part
    So hello Mary Lou
    Goodbye heart"

    I saw your lips I heard your voice
    Believe me I just had no choice
    Wild horses couldn't make me stay away
    I thought about a moonlit night
    Arms around you, good an' tight
    All I had to see for me to say

    I said "hello Mary Lou
    Goodbye heart
    Sweet Mary Lou
    I'm so in love with you"

    I knew Mary Lou

    He was the only serious competition to Elvis in his heyday.

  42. AS1313

    Ricky Nelson was a great talent he had a quiet dignity about him. I have grown to appreciate his singing more over the years this recording is about 60 years old and is still good he had a clear voice. You could always understand the lyrics

    My beautiful grandmother passed away today. Her name was Mary Lou, but to me and my brother she was always Mimi :) Growing up, my grandfather used to play this song on the guitar while we danced and sang, jumped on and off the bed. He worshiped her. My father (her son) passed away 3 years ago due to pancreatic cancer. Although I can’t bear that she’s gone, I can’t help but rejoice at her being reunited with my dad, and that she’s no longer suffering. RIP my precious Mimi! Til we meet again my angel!

  73. Jody Ressel

    With all due respect it just blows my mind that this son is almost 60 years old. I know the sound is probably enhanced some. But it’s amazing the quality is to me. Of course Rickys voice with the spot on instruments don’t hurt either. I’m just blown, classics don’t fade at all!!! Thank you Mr. Nelson! Rip man 😞
