                         HELLO MY BABY
              by Megan Lynch - http://meganlynch.net/
              originally performed by Arthur Collins

I've got a little baby, but she's out of sight,
                 B            E
I talk to her across the telephone.
I've never seen my honey but she's mine all right,
                     E7             A
So take my tip and leave this gal alone.
Every single morning you will hear me yell,
      A7                           D
"Hey Central! Fix me up along the line."
       D                Dm         A           F#7
He connects me with ma honey, then I rings the bell,
     B7                         E7
And this is what I say to baby mine,

A                               B
Hello! ma baby, Hello! Ma honey, Hello! ma ragtime gal.
E7                       A      Ab          E7
Send me a kiss by wire, baby my heart's on fire!
A                 F#                     B7                
If you refuse me, Honey, you'll lose me, then you'll be left alone;
         E             E7               A           
Oh baby, telephone and tell me I'm your own.
      E               A               
Hello! Hello! Hello there.

This morning, through the phone, she said her name was Bess. 
                   B              E
And now I kind of know where I am at; 

I'm satisfied because I've got my babe's address, 
                    E7           A
Here, pasted in the lining of my hat. 

I am mighty scared,  'Cause if the wires get crossed, 
          A7                      D
'Twill separate me from ma baby mine, 
         D               Dm            A        F#7
Then some other guy will win her, And my game is lost, 
     B7                           E7
And so each day I shout along the line:
