A D9 Bm7-5 A I woke up this morning and the sun was shining but I didn't see it; A D9 Bm7-5 A A7 I think I drank my orange juice but I don't know, I wouldn't guarantee it. D Dm Dm7 A Wore my yellow dress or was it blue, oh what's the use, I don't remember. Gdim Bm7 E7/6 Is it Monday, is it Tuesday is it June or is it still, December? A Bm7-5 Sat beside my window, watch the couples strolling by, C#m7-5 F#7 Felt so sorry for myself, I couldn't even cry; D Dm7 A B7 Finally I pulled the shade -- I couldn't stand the gaff D Cdim E7 So I sat down and wrote my ep - i - taph. Bm7-5 A D9 A F#m7 B7 Bm7 E7 E7-9 A I'm no - bod - y's ba - by -- I won - der why? A7 Bm7-5 Cdim F#7 Bm Bm7 Each night and day I pray the Lord up above, B7 Bm7-5 E7 Please send me down some - bod - y to love. A D9 A F#m7 B7 Bm7-5 E E7 C#7 But no - bod - y wants me -- I'm blue some - how. F#7 C#7 D9 Dm6 A C#m7-5 F#7 Won't some - one hear my plea and take a chance with me?

F#7 C#7 D9 Dm6 A C#m7-5 F#7 Won't some - one hear my plea and take a chance with me? D B7 There's no de - ny - in', I'm cry - in', A G#7 F#7 I'm lone - some on my own - some -- D Fdim Bm7-5 E E7/6 E7 A6 I don't mean may - be, I'm no - bod - y's ba - by.
This is an admittedly-abbreviated version -- the recording upon which it is based has a number of key and tempo changes which I've omitted here.
