Is You Is Or Is You Aint My Baby Dinah Washington
I[F7] got a g[E7]al that's always late, ev'ry time we have a date,
But I [DM7]love her, [Dm+7] [E7]yes I [A]love [AM7]her, [F#7]
Am G7alt F7 E7 A
I'[F#7]m gonna walk right up to her gate and see if I can get it straight,
'Cause I [D9]want her,[E7] I'm gonna [A]ask her. [F#7]
[A]Is you is or[C#7] is you ain't my [D]baby? [D6]
T[Bm7-5]he way [E7]you're actin' lately makes me doubt
[Dm6]Yous[Dm+7] is s[E7]till my[E7/6] baby, b[A]aby --[F#7]
[Dm6]Seems my [Bm7-5]flame in [E7/6]your heart's [Fdim]done [E7/6]gone o[A]ut.
A w[A]oman is a creature that has al - ways been strange;
J[D]ust when you're [Cdim]sure of one,
You find she's [B7]gone and made a c[E7]hange.
[A]Is you is or[C#7] is you ain't my b[D]aby? [D6]
Ma[F#7]ybe baby's found somebody new,
Or [B7]is my baby [Fdim]still my [E7]baby t[A]rue?
*I'm crediting Jordan here principly because he co-wrote and popularized the song, but
listened to several versions -- notably Dinah Washington's from 1956 and Diana Krall's
1994 -- and each have their advantages.
