Here you go, Jeepster. Sounds really nice when you get the rhythm down, especially on a tenor banjo.
I [F]guess I've [D7]had a [Gm7]million [C7]dolls or [F]more.
I'll [F]tell you [D7]boys, it's [Gm7]tough to [C7]be a-[F]lone
I'm goin' to [F]buy a [F7]paper [D7]doll that I can [G7]call my own,
A [C7]doll that other fellows [E7]cannot [F]steal,
And then the flirty, flirty guys [Fm]with their [C]flirty, flirty [A7]eyes, [Ebdim]
Will [G7]have to flirt with dollies that are [C7]real. [Cdim] [C7]
When [F]I come [D7]home at [G7]night she [C7]will be [F]waiting,

I think it's a good idea to have another copy of the lyrics that doesn't have the chords embedded. This copy will be easier to find with a search engine, if somebody searches for a phrase from the lyrics.
I checked this copy against a recording by the Mills Brothers.
John Stewart Black a.k.a. Johnny Black
1. I'm gonna buy a paper doll that I can call my own,
A doll that other fellows cannot steal;
And then the flirty, flirty guys with their flirty, flirty eyes
Will have to flirt with dollies that are real.
2. When I come home at night she will be waiting.
She'll be the truest doll in all this world.
I'd rather have a paper doll to call my own
Than have a fickle-minded real live girl.
3. I guess I had a million dolls or more.
I guess I've played the doll game o'er and o'er.
I just quarreled with Sue. That's why I'm blue.
She's gone away and left me just like all dolls do.
4. I'll tell you boys, it's tough to be alone,
And it's tough to love a doll that's not your own.
I'm through with all of them.
I'll never fall again.
Say, boy, what you gonna do?
REPEAT 1 & 2.

I think the Mills Brothers provide the voice over to Philip Marlowe's Dad's singing in the Singing Detective.
