Verse 1
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/ricky_nelson/poor_little_fool_crd.html ]
   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
