By Alfred Bryan, James V. Monaco & Pete Wendling
.
[8-C] I don’t worry when the blues come [8-D7] stealing
[6-G7] I know how to cure them [2-G+=0332] right [6-C] away [2-G7]

[6-F] Any old-time that [2-Fm] you come [2-C] cud-dl'- [1-C9] ing [5-A7] near
[8-D7] Isn’t strange that the way that the [8-G7] blues disappear?
[8-C] Red lips hold them [8-D7] close to mine
[4-G7] Sweetheart [4-C7] don’t de- [8-F] lay

[6-G7] Other boys have the blues just [2-G+] like my [6-C] own [2-G7]
[8-C] Here’s the song she always hears them [4-G] singing [4-E7]
[4-A7] Every time that [4-D7] she picks up the [8-G7] phone:

CHORUS
