The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Lulu Walls

One evening getting dark, we 4 first met at the 1 park
Sitting by the fountain all a 5 lone
I 1 lifted up my hat, and 4 then began to 1 chat
She said she'd 'low me to 5 see her at her 1 home

Such a 4 star I've never seen, she's as 1 pretty as a queen
She's as perfect as an angel from a 5 bove
If she'd 1 only be my wife, I'd live 4 happy all my 1 life
With that aggravating 5 beauty Lulu 1 Walls

If she were only mine, I would build a house so fine
And around it so many fences tall
It would make me jealous free, that no one else but me
Could gaze upon that beauty Lulu Walls

One evening getting late, I met her at the gate
I asked her if she'd wed me in the fall
She only turned away, and nothing would she say
That aggravating beauty Lulu Walls
