8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I burned up ev'ry letter, And thought that I'd feel better,
I put away her picture too.
Sent back each little present, And tho' it wasn't pleasant,
It seemed the wisest thing to do.
I've done ev'rything I could and yet,
It isn't very easy to forget.
First Chorus:
I wonder where my baby is tonight,
I wonder how my baby is tonight,
I wonder where she's gone, And how she's getting on,
I wonder why my baby doesn't write.
If she came back I wonder what I'd do,
I wonder did she find somebody new,
She didn't treat me fair, And tho' I shouldn't care,
I wonder where my baby is tonight.
Second "Charleston" Chorus:
I wonder does my baby do the Charleston, Charleston,
I wonder who is teaching her the Charleston, Charleston,
While I sit and sigh the time goes draggin' by,
I'd like to kill the guy who wrote the Charleston, Charleston.
We parted 'cause I couldn't do the Charleston, Charleston,
She'd still be here if I could do the Charleston, Charleston,
I'm takin' lessons now, I'll win her back somehow,
I wonder where my baby is tonight.
