F#m           C#7               F#m      C#7     F#m
Listen to my tale of woe - it's terribly sad but true;

A           D9     E7       A   D9   A   D9  A    E  E6   A
All dressed up, no place to go; each evening I'm awfully blue.

E      E7        A               E       E7 Bm7-5  A
I must win some handsome guy -- can't go on like this.

F#m     C#7      F#m    A          F#       C#7       F#  E7
I could blossom out, I know, with somebody just like you, so


A    D9   Dm6  A    Bm7 Amaj7 D9 Fdim A    G7  F#7
Oh, sweet and love - ly la -  dy, be good;

    D9 Bm7-5     E7 E7/6 A  Em9  D9  Dm6 - Fdim
Oh, la - dy, be good to me.


A D9 E7 Dm6   Fdim Amaj7 D9  Fdim     A   G7  F#7
I am so awf' - ly  mis - un - der - stood,

   Bm   D9 Bm7-5  E Fdim A
So la - dy  be  good to  me.


(Bridge:)

Dmaj7 F#m Bm7        Cdim      Amaj7/6 Amaj7
Oh,           please have some pi  -   ty;

F#m7 Cdim     B7     D9   E7  D9  Bm7-5
I'm  all a - lone in this big ci - ty.

A Bm7-5 Cdim
I tell  you,


A    D9 E7 Dm6   Fdim  Amaj7 D9 Fdim A     G7 F#7
I'm just a lone - some babe  in the  wood,

B7 E7  Cdim Bm7-5 E7  E7/6 A  C#m7-5  Bm7 Fdim A7/6
So la - dy,   be good  to  me.
