Verse:
Shades of night are fall - ing and I'm lone - ly,
Stand - ing on the cor - ner feel - ing blue.
Sweet - hearts out for fun,  Pass me one by one,
Guess I'll wind up like I al - ways do, with on - ly;
 
Chorus:
Me and my sha - dow,
Stroll - ing down the av - en - ue.
Me and my sha - dow,
Not a soul to tell our trou - bles to.
And when it's twelve o' - clock,  We climb the stair,
We nev - er knock,  For no - bod - y's there,
Just me and my sha -dow,
All a - lone and feel - ing blue.
