1. Well, which way is it, can I get there from here

             G

    will I find it or am I even near ?

    I'm looking for the happy part of town.

2. Oh, I've been walking, yes, I walked all night,

                     G

    someone told me that I must turn right,

That's where my darling is, at least I think she is,

I wonder what it is she thinks she's found.

                        G                               D

If she stopped loving me I've got to go and see,

      E                  A7

I'm in the lonely part of town.

 

                          D                      D7

3. But I'll keep walking, yes, I'll walk all night,

    I'm still looking for the happy part of town.
