Mary Had A Little Lamb Chord

A
Mary had a little lamb,
E            A
Little lamb, little lamb,
A
Mary had a little lamb,
    E                   A
Its fleece was white as snow
 
A
Everywhere that Mary went,
E          A
Mary went, Mary went,
A
Everywhere that Mary went
    E                A
The lamb was sure to go
 
   A
It followed her to school one day
E               A
School one day, school one day
   A
It followed her to school one day
      E               A
Which was against the rules.
 
   A
It made the children laugh and play,
E               A
Laugh and play, laugh and play,
   A
It made the children laugh and play
   E             A
To see a lamb at school
 
    A
And so the teacher turned it out,
E              A
Turned it out, turned it out,
    A
And so the teacher turned it out,
    E                 A
But still it lingered near
 
    A
And waited patiently about,
       E                A
Patiently about, patiently about,
    A
And waited patiently about
     E          A
Till Mary did appear
 
A
"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
E                       A
Love Mary so? Love Mary so?
A
"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
    E              A
The eager children cry
 
      A
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
          E                        A
Loves the lamb you know, loves the lamb you know
      A
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
    E             A
The teacher did reply
