The torch I carry is handsome;

It's worth it's heartache in ransome.

Since love is gone, can't pull my - self to - geth - er

Guess I'll hang my tears out to dry

Friends ask me out, but I tell them I'm bus - y --

Got to get a new al - i - bi

AM7        F#7      DM7                 Dm+7  Dm6

Re - mind her of our cra - zy schemes

     C#m7           Cm7   Bm7                E7/9  E7
Yes, some - bod - y said "Just for - get a - bout her,"

  AM7          F#m7           D9   Dm6
So I gave that treat - ment a try,

    AM7               F#7     DM7                 Dm+7 Dm6
And strange - ly e - nough, I got a - long with - out  her --

 A       E7  A7sus4 AM7      C#m7-5 F#7  Fdim E7/9
Then one day  she  passed me right  by -- oh, well,

E7  D9       Fdim    E7/6 Bm7-5   A
I guess I'll hang my tears out to dry.
