8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in the key of F.
I've an agreeable baby,  Likes ev'ry thing that I do.
Dances most ev'ry night,  Movies are her delight,  I sorta go for them too.
But when movies and dances are done,  That's when I have real fun;
Gee, it's great after bein' out late,  Walkin' my baby back home.
Arm in arm over meadow and farm,  Walkin' my baby back home.
We go 'long harmonizing a song,  Or I'm reciting a poem.
Owls go by, and they give me the eye,  Walkin' my baby back home.
We stop for a while, she gives me a smile,  And snuggles her head on my chest.
We start in to pet,  and thats when I get,  Her talcum all over my vest.
After I kinda straighten my tie,  She has to borrow my comb.
Once kiss, then I continue again,  Walkin' my baby back home.
