Gonna Get Along Without You NowWords & Music by Milt Kellon
Recorded by Patience and Prudence, 1956 (#11)
G C G Dm7 G C Uh huh, uh huh, gonna get along without you now; G C G Uh huh my honey, uh huh my honey, Dm7 G C Gonna get along without you now. Em7 Am You told me I was the neatest thing, Em7 Am You even asked me to wear your ring; C Am You ran around with every girl in town, Dm7 G9 G You never cared if it got me down. C G Got along without you before I met you, Dm7 G C Gonna get along without you now; G C G Gonna find somebody who's twice as cute, Dm7 G C 'Cause I didn't like you anyhow. You told everybody that we were friends, But this is where our friendship ends, 'Cause all of a sudden you changed your tune, You haven't been around since way last June. Got along without you before I met you, Gonna get along without you now; Got along without you before I met you, Gonna get along without you now. Coda: G C G C So long, my honey, goodbye, my dear, G G7 C Gonna get along without you now.
Patience and Prudence(McIntyre) were the 11 & 14-year-old daughters of the band leader. Other than "Tonight You Belong to Me," their few other recordings made much of an impact on the music industry (though they are still available on CD.) The girls largely disappeared from sight.
Like others, I've wondered for years what became of them, but was unable to learn much. Recent visitor Joe Walsh provided me with a link that offers what little "news" I have ever been able to find. You can find it at http://earcandy_mag.tripod.com/rrcase-patienceprud.htm"http://earcandy_mag.tripod.com/rrcase-patienceprud.htm and read it for yourself -- though the unidentified source of the information makes verification difficult.
