Am     G7alt        F7     E7   Am    Fdim  
 F7      E7
I got a gal that's always late, ev'ry time we have a date,

      DM7       Dm+7  E7    A    AM7   F#7
But I love her,       yes I love her,

Am      G7alt        F7         E7       A    
I'm gonna walk right up to her gate and see if  I  can get it straight,

         D9       E7           A          F#7
'Cause I want her,   I'm gonna ask her.

A           C#7              D     D6
Is you is or is you ain't my baby?

     E7       Cdim     E7    E7/6      A   
 Bm7-5  E7
The way you're actin' lately makes me doubt

Dm6 Dm+7 E7     E7/6    A     F#7
Yous is still my baby, baby --

Dm6      Bm7-5    E7/6         Fdim E7/6  A
Seems my flame in your heart's done gone out.

  D          Cdim     B7       D9  Bm7-5    
A woman is a creature that has al - ways been strange;

 D               Cdim
Just when you're sure of one,

               B7               E7
You find she's gone and made a change.

A           C#7               D     D6
Is you is or is you ain't my baby?

E7    Cdim     E7     E7/6  A     
Maybe baby's found somebody new,

   B7         Fdim     E7    A
Or is my baby still my baby true?

*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.
