WAND'RIN' STAR
Words by Alan Lerner Music by Frederic Loewe
Copyright 1951 by Lerner & Loewe

4/4 time Key Eb Chording = classic cycle of 5ths/4ths

I was born under a Wand-rin' Star.
Mud can make you pris-ner
and the plains can my you dry
Snow can burn you eyes
but only people make you cry.

Home is made of com-in' from, for dreams of goin to
Which with any luck
will never come true

Do you know where hell is?
Hell is in hello
First its time for meetin' people
and then its time to go

I was born under a wand-rin' star
When I get to heaven
tie me to a tree
Or I'll begin to roam
And soon you'll know wheere I will be

I was born under a wand-rin' star.
A wand-rin', wand'rin' star.

Contains one of my favorite line "Do you know where hell is................."
