Wake Up Irene
Recorded by Hank Thompson
Written by Weldon Allard and Johnny Hathcock

G C G
For months and months and months around the country
C G
Everybody sang Irene goodnight
C G
But she wouldn’t go to bed no matter what they said
D7 G
Though everybody tried with all their might

C G
She stayed awake while steel guitars were a going
C G
In every honky-tonk she could be seen
C G
But she finally went to bed and covered up her head
D7 G
And now there’s not a thing can wake Irene

C G
Wakeup Irene you’ve sleep to long
C D7
Wakeup Irene it’s time to move along
C G
Wakeup Irene and pay for your bed
D7 G
Wakeup Irene or folks will think your dead

C G
Lot’s of guitar pickers by the dozen
C G
Sang goodnight Irene all night and day
C G
And even Crosby too with his bobobabobedo
D7 G
Tried to get Irene to hit the hay

C G
Well I guess they finally sang her off to slumber
C G
They must have tried a million times or more
C G
But oh my aching back when she finally hit the sack
D7 G
Man you ought to hear that women snore

Repeat #3
