To play in the same key as the video GCEA tuning, put your capo on the 5th fret. Normally these days you only hear the song starting at verse number 3 - but it's a shame to leave out the wonderful introductory verses that were so common in these Tin Pan Alley songs - they help tell the story - the before and after!

The songsheet has most of the original lyrics from the 1930 Broadway musical as recorded by Harry Richman but has been slightly abridged for group play.
