LOVABLE AND SWEET Lyrics:Sidney Clare Music: Oscar Levant Notes: This is based on the insanely chirpy Annette Hanshaw version of about 1929 with the doodly doos and so on retained in the lyrics. The chords...well, they're an approximation. There's probably about 20 missing but they're mostly jazzy passing chord fill sort of things. Perhaps someone slightly more jazz-enabled than I might do an improvement at some stage. If you're trying to play along with the recording incidentally, you'll need to transpose up 4 semi-tones. The below is just what I do and Annette sang a little higher than me. Happy plunking.
