Paper Doll
recorded by Hank Thompson
written by Johnny Black
C               G7    A7              D7
I'm gonna buy a paper doll that I can call my own
  G7                             C
A doll that other fellows cannot steal
                                              G7           E7
And then those flirty flirty guys  with their flirty flirty eyes
     D7                                  G7
Will have to flirt with dollies that are real
     C      A7      D7        G7      C
When I come home at night she will be waiting
              A7     D7      G7       E7
She'll be the truest doll in all this world
    F                           C   E7  A7
I'd rather have a paper doll to call my own
            D7            F    G7   C
Than have a fickle minded real live girl
                   G7               C
I guess I've had a million dolls or more
                                  E7       Am
I guess I've played the doll game o'er and o'er
       G7                 C
I just quarreled with Sue that's why I'm blue
      D7                              G7  D7    G7
She's gone away and left me just like all dolls do
     C        A7              G7    C
I'll tell you boys it's tough to be alone
                  Dm                 E7       Am
And it's tough to love a doll that's not your own
G                       D7     G          E7
I'm through with all of them   I'll never fall again
         A7     D7        G7
Hey boys here's what I'll do

Repeat #1 and #2

Classic Country Music Lyrics home | Hank Thompson lyrics

This wonderful song has been recorded by many artists and they're all good, but I much prefer Hank Thompson's version because of his band, the "Brazos Valley Boys". If you like up tempo music with a bit of western swing you'll enjoy it as well. Print out Paper Doll lyrics and chords, it takes practice to get the timing down, I'm not a good picker and I have to leave off a few of what I call exotic chords, but it works ok.
