[chordpress float=”none” format=”yes” hbnotation=”no” interactive=”no” transpose=”0″]Call Me Mr. In Between
Recorded Burl Ives Written by Harland Howard
[C]Well I’m [F]too old for girls and I’m too young for women
I’ve [C]looked all around and my hopes are a-dimming
I [G7]feel like a fish not allowed any swimming
And it makes a fella [C]mean
To [F]feel he’s a part of the Lost Generation
I [C]feel like a choo-choo that can’t find the station
I [G7]work like a dog with no recreation
They call me Mr. In-[C]Between
Got a [F]hotrod Chevy with a twin carburetor
And [C]I know a gal that’s a real sharp tomater
And [G7]she’s got a Daddy with a Caddy that’ll date ‘er
You see what I [C]mean
Those [F]sweet little things just set me a-drooling
I’m [C]too big for sodas and I’m too old for schooling
[G7]Too young for loving but I’m too old for fooling
They call me Mr. In-[C]Between
I [F]feel like a sailboat kept in a bottle
I [C]feel like an engineer that can’t find the throttle
I’m [G7]too small to walk but I’m too big to toddle
And Lordy I’m turning [C]green

To [F]see all the men making time with the ladies
The [C]high school kids at the show with their babies
While [G7]I run around like a dog with the rabies
They call me Mr. In-[C]Between[/chordpress]

– Burl Icle Ivanhoe Ives (June 14, 1909 – April 14, 1995) was an American singer, musician, actor, and author.
Ives began his career as an itinerant singer and guitarist, eventually launching his own radio show, The Wayfaring Stranger, which popularized traditional folk songs. In 1942, he appeared in Irving Berlin’s This Is the Army and became a major star of CBS Radio. In the 1960s, he successfully crossed over into country music, recording hits such as “A Little Bitty Tear” and “Funny Way of Laughin'”. Ives was also a popular film actor through the late 1940s and ’50s. His film roles included parts in So Dear to My Heart (1948) and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958), as well as the role of Rufus Hannassey in The Big Country (1958), for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
Ives is often associated with the Christmas season. He did voice-over work as Sam the Snowman, narrator of the classic 1964 Christmas television special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Ives also worked on the special’s soundtrack, including the songs “A Holly Jolly Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, both of which continue to chart annually on the Billboard holiday charts into the 2020s.
