approximating it as best I can because at least three notes are held for a few

lower as outlined below.

NOTE: You can choose to play the verse chords at other positions. I chose
these specific fingers because they add the higher notes that might be
played by another guitar. Here are alternate fingering suggestions:

Dm (xx0132) or (x57765)
F (x81010108) or (133211)
C (x35553) or (x32010)

Verse 1 Lyrics

There goes Mary Riley
With fire in her eyes
And as she dances in the moonlight
She drives me mild
She had seven brothers
And boy did they like to fight
And I’m not much to look at
But I’ll muscle up tonight (OH!)
