8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
You were ev'rybody's sweetheart,
Not so long ago,
And in our home town, each boy around,
Longed to be your beau.
But things are diff'rent today,
I'm mighty sorry to say:
You're Nobody's Sweetheart now.
They don't baby you somehow,
Fancy hose, silken gown,
You'd be out of place in your own home town.
When you walk down the avenue,
I just can't believe that it's you.
Painted lips, Painted eyes,
Wearing a Bird of Paradise.
It all seems wrong somehow,
That you're Nobody's Sweetheart now.
