Show Me The Way To Go Home (Written and Composed by Irving King ) I believe this song was first sung by Ella Sheilds( 1879 -1952), as she recorded it in 1925,the year of its publication :
F Bb When I'm happy, when I'm happy F C Singing all the while F Bb I don't need nobody then F C To show ( tell?) me how to smile F Bb When I've been out on the spree F C Toddling down the street F Bb With this little melody F C Everyone I greet
F Show me the way to go home Bb F I'm tired and I want to go to bed F I had a little drink about an hour ago C And it's gone right to my head F No matter where I roam Bb On land or sea or foam F You can(will ) always hear me singing this song C F Show me the way to go home
Another verse: Some folks say, eat more fruit, some say, eat more meat Others say what's wrong with fish and how's your poor old feet? I think it's a waste of time,you must with me agree Everyone should sing more songs , so sing this one with me.
