Irene Wilde  Ian Hunter

Irene Wilde - Ian Hunter Band
Taken from the live album Welcome to the Club. It's a piano piece but transfers to
acoustic nicely.
Intro/Pre-chord: G
When [C]I was just six[G]teen I stood [Am]waiting for a [Em]dream
At [F]Barker Street Bus Sta[G]tion every [C]night[F]
When I [C]tried to get it [G]on she just [Am]looked at me with [Em]scorn
My [F]courage turned to [G]fear and I took [C]flight[F] [C]
For those [Am]looks they seemed to [F]say you ainít [G]nothin' go [C]away
Youíre just some [Am]face in some [F]crowd so I [G]walked home and I [C]vowed
I'm gonna [F]be [C]some[F]body somed[C]ay[F] [C] [F]
Her [C]name was Irene [G]Wilde Oh such [Am]beauty for a [Em]child
When she [F]started dating [G]boys I nearly [C]died[F]
Well I [C]could not barely [G]stand seeing [Am]anyone hold her [Em]hand
I [F]thought I'd have to [G]crawl away and [C]hide[F] [C]
( Tab from: )
In my [Am]mother's Sunday [F]room Iíd com[G]pose so many [C]tunes
They was all the [Am]same just a [F]frame for the [G]name and just to [C]say
F C F C C bridge
I'm gonna be somebody someday
[Am]Wild was your [F]name, I soon [G]left that country [C]town
Iíve been a[Am]round, I've seen some [F]things,
Iíve seen some [G]ups, I've seen some [C]downs
[Am]Smile through your [F]shock as you [G]hear your name out[C]loud
Iís that [Am]face in the [F]crowd
I didn't [G]dig it I'm much too [C]proud
[C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [F]  
When [C]I was just six[G]teen I stood [Am]waiting for that [Em]dream
At [F]Barker street bus sta[G]tion non-af[C]fair[F]
At the [C]time it seemed so [G]sad but it [Am]didn't turn out [Em]bad
if she [F]hadn't turned me [G]down I'd still be [C]there[F] [C]
Well I [Am]think most folks [F]agree
A little [G]put-down makes them [C]see
they aint the [Am]chain they're just a [F]link
and thats [G]why she made me [C]think
I'm gonna [F]be [C]some[F]body, [F]be [C]some[F]body, [F]be [C]some[F]body Ė some[C]day[F] [C] [F] [C]
