Please remove the hyphens with in lyric words or put them into all the multisyllabic words. They are unnecessary and confusing when they're scattered about haphazardly.

I'm aware of the normal syllabication in sheet music. I just do not see it being used consistently within this lyric/chord sheet. But I understand your point.
BTW, in the third verse, isn't the last line "Maybe I'd be happier then on Blue Bayou"?

You're welcome, DB, and thanks for doing such a good job of posting these lyrics and chords. Roy definitely sings "Maybe I'd be happier then on Blue Bayou."
