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

Show me the way to go home
     Bb                               F
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it's gone right to my head
No matter where I roam
On land or sea or foam
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.
