I Guess I'll Get the Papers (And Go Home)Words & Music by Hal Kenner, Hughie Prince & Dick Rodgers
Recorded by The Mills Brothers, 1946
D F#m B7 I guess I'll get the papers and go home, Cdim E7 Bm7-5 E7 Cdim E7 Like I've been doin' ever since we've been apart. A7 Em7 A7 A Fdim A7 I get some consolation when I read, D F#m B7 Edim A7 Of some - one el - se's lone - ly heart. D F#m B7 I wonder if you get the papers too, Cdim E7 Bm7-5 E7 Cdim E7 And if you feel as mel - an - chol - y as I do. D F#m B7 D F#m Bb Until you're in my arms again, never more to roam, D B7 E7 Edim D I guess I'll get the papers and go home.
Thanks to recent visitor Al Lees for the suggestion, and to the helpful folks in a particular chatgroup who went out of their way to locate a source from which I could transcribe.
