BYE-BYE COUNTRY BOY (Blossom Dearie / Jack Segal) Susannah McCorkle - 1981 Blossom Dearie - 1983 Claire Martin - 1996 Karrin Allyson - 2002 Bye-Bye country boy You've been a joy, a shiny toy Glad we played your County Fair I'm glad you came to see me there I sang that song, looked right at you You came backstage like I knew you'd do It's a doggone shame our week is through Bye-Bye country boy, sweet shy country boy Bye-Bye country boy Your Sunday clothes, you brought a rose I love the hot-rod moonlight spins Those sleepy roomy country inns Your voice sends my world aways Those sunny laughing picnic days You've been a joy, a shiny toy Bye-Bye country boy, sweet shy country boy (Instrumental Break) Bye-Bye country boy It's time to go, it's closing show You still think that I'm a star Just shows how hazy dumb you are If you'd just say "Hey, stick around" I'd tell my Band I ain't leavin' town But you don't dream I'd settle down Do you country boy, sweet shy country boy Bye-Bye country boy I got to pack, I can't look back Don't come 'round and say goodbye You mustn't see a big star cry But once I'm home in old L.A. My heart and mind will be miles away Still wishing you had made me stay Bye-Bye country boy, sweet shy country boy (Scat singing) You've been a joy, a shiny toy (Scat singing) I got to pack, I can't look back (Scat singing............FADE) (Transcribed from the Karrin Allyson recording by Mel Priddle - December 2005)
