You could put a B7 there, Brendy--wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit--

I haven't posted all my chords, for the simple reason that, though I have worked the chords up to most of it, as per the way I remember it, but I am only sure of about half the introduction, and will have to go back and find a recording (other than the Tom Waits one that I have handy) so that I can actually hear the thing--this means going in to the deep archives, so it'll be monday or so--

The melody on this varies from one recording to another, and, more than most tunes, slight alterations in melody changes the chords--I'll use the Rudy Valley and Al Jolson versions--I don't really remember the Goodman version, Chad Mitchell changed it around a lot, and forget Waits entirely--
