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
