...LEANIN' ON A LAMP-POST... by George Formby
----------------------------.................

*Released 1937*

*N.B...Ukulele CHORD DIAGRAMS follow the Guitar Tab*


Intro:

    C            G7              C6    C#dim     G
I'm leaning on a lamp; maybe you think, I look a tramp,
           C         C6       D7       G7      C   D#dim  Dm7  G7
Or you may think I'm hanging 'round to steal a car.

    C             G7                C6    C#dim          G7
But no, I'm not a crook, and if you think, that's what I look;
              G                Am      D7      G7  Dm7  G7
I'll tell you why I'm here and what my motives are.

*(Tempo Change)*

Verse 1:

    C
I'm leaning on a lamp-post, at the corner of the street,
          G7                        C
In case a certain little lady comes by.
   Dm7 G7  C  Am7
Oh me,  oh my,
  G               D7         G  G7
I hope the little lady comes by.

  C
I don't know if she'll get away, she doesn't always get away,
    G7                        C
But anyhow I know that she'll try.
   Dm7 G7  C  Am7
Oh me,  oh my,
  G               D7         G
I hope the little lady comes by.

Bridge 1:

        G7                    Dm7  G7
There's no other girl I would wait for,
Gaug C                      E7   Am
 But this one I'd break any date for.
  D7                           Am7  D7
I won't have to ask what she's late for;
    G7                Dm7               G7
She wouldn't leave me flat; she's not a girl like that.

Chorus 1:

          C
Oh, she's absolutely wonderful and marvellous and beautiful,
    G7                    C7  Caug
And anyone can understand why;
    F                             D7
I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street,
          C              G7          C
In case a certain little lady passes by.

(Tempo Change)

Verse 2:

    C
I'm leaning on a lamp-post, at the corner of the street,
          G7                        C
In case a certain little lady comes by.
   Dm7 G7  C  Am7
Oh me,  oh my,
  G               D7         G  G7
I hope the little lady comes by.

  C
I don't know if she'll get away, she doesn't always get away,
    G7                        C
But anyhow I know that she'll try.
   Dm7 G7  C  Am7
Oh me,  oh my,
  G               D7
I hope the little lady goes;
G7 (n.C)
 Wah dah, dah dah dah, dah dee, boom boom.

Bridge 2:

        G7                    Dm7  G7
There's no other girl I would wait for,
Gaug C                      E7   Am
 But this one I'd break any date for.
  D7                           Am7  D7
I won't have to ask what she's late for;
    G7                Dm7               G7
She wouldn't leave me flat; she's not a girl like that.

Chorus 2:

          C
Oh, she's absolutely wonderful and marvellous and beautiful,
    G7                    C7  Caug
And anyone can understand why;
    F                             D7
I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street,
          C              G7          C  G7
In case a certain little lady passes by.
