Originally recorded by Ruby and the Romantics as 'Hey There Lonely Boy';
a much bigger hit in this regendered version by Eddie Holman.  Not sure
where this was recorded, but the stuttering bass line and minimalist
string arrangement point toward Philadelphia.

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/eddie_holman/hey_there_lonely_girl_crd.html ]
	                         C#m7
	Ever since he broke your heart
	                  D6
	You've seemed so lost
	                E7
	Each time you passed my way

	Oh, how I long to take your hand
	               D6
	And say "don't cry
	                E7
	I'll kiss your tears away"

[repeat chorus]

Verse 2 (first three lines sung by background singers):

	(You think that only his two lips
	 Can kiss your lips
	 And make your heart stand still)
	But once you're in my arms you'll see
