Intro Verse:

 D          G          D              G
All our friends keep knocking on my door;

         D         G    D                Bm
They've asked me out a hundred times or more.

C#7 F#m   G#m7 C#7   F#m    F#m7       B9
But all I say  is, "Leave me in the gloom,"

     Em    F#m7  B7    Em     Em7    A7     A-9
And here I stay with - in my lonely room, 'cause

Em7              A7               E7   A7
I don't want to walk without you, ba - by,

D                               Am   B7     F#m7    Dm   B7
Walk without my arms about you, ba - by.

E9            G        A7        D
I thought the day you left me behind,

F#m        Cdim       C#7           F#m     Dm       E7    A7   Cdim
I'd take a stroll and get you right off my mind, but now I find that

Em7             A7                E7     A7
I don't want to walk without the sun - shine;

  D                                  Am    B7    F#m7   Dm    B7
Why'd you have to turn off all that sun - shine?

E9         G           A7             D     A7  D   Fdim  F#m7
Oh, baby, please come back, or you'll break my heart for   me,

  Cdim Em              A7      G/B  A7  Em7 Gdim    D    A7   A-9
'Cause I don't want to walk without you, no  sir - ree.

Last Time:

Em7 G/B   A7sus4  A7    D
No,        sir    -    ree.
