1. Had our number changed today although I hated to,

                    D                                                                  G

    but each time the phone would ring they'd want to speak to you.

                G                                                         C

    And it hurts to tell them you're not here with me,

                   G                   D7                     G

    may be now, oh, telephone, will let me be.

 

                G                                                   C

2. It's not in the book now so you'd better write it down,

                D                                                    G

    just in case your love for me should ever come around.

                       G                                                    C

    You might want to call and break the news to me,

                  G               D7 G

    just call lonesome 77203.

    hoping you might want to call and say you've changed your mind.

               G                                                        C

    If you do, then, darling, you know where I'll be,

              G                D7 G
