About this tab version
I couldn’t find a decent tab of the 1926 Victor recording of comedian/vaudevillian Frank Crumit, so I decided to tab it myself. This includes the lesser-known verses. Be aware that this is tuned a half-step down, so all these notes are technically flat. Nobody is perfect, but I played along with the record over and over, and I think this does the job. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Chorus]

A                            
Show me the way to go home, I’m
D                       A 
Tired and I wanna go to bed; I
A         
Had a little drink about an hour ago, and it’s
B                E 
Gone right to my head

A 
Wherever I may roam, o’er
D              A 
Land or sea or foam, you can
A 
Always hear me singin’ this song
B                     A 
Show me the way to go home.


[Verse]

A               D 
When I'm happy, when I'm happy
A               E 
singing all the while
A              D 
I don't need nobody there to 
A       E      A 
show me how to smile

E 
When I've been out on a spree
A        B        E 
Toddling down the street
E 
With this little melody
A    B     E 
Everyone I greet


[Chorus: slurred, drunken]

A                            
Show me the way to go home, I’m
D                       A 
Tired and I wanna go to bed; I
A         
Had a little drink about an hour ago, and it’s
B                E 
Gone right to my head

A 
Wherever I may roam, o’er
D              A 
Land or sea or foam, you can
A 
Alwaysh hear me shingin’ ‘nis shong
B                     A 
Show me the way to go home.


[Verse: back to normal]

A                   D 
Old King Cole Was a merry old soul, and a
A                  E 
Merry old soul was he; he
A                           D 
Called for his wine, and he called for his pipe, and he
A              E        A 
Called for his fiddlers three.

E 
When they’d had a high old time
A       B           E 
All the whole night through
E 
What was it that King Cole said
A       B        E 
And his fidders, too?


[Chorus]

A                            
Show me the way to go home, I’m
D                       A 
Tired and I wanna go to bed; I
A         
Had a little drink about an hour ago, and it’s
B                E 
Gone right to my head

A 
Wherever I may roam, o’er
D              A 
Land or sea or foam, you can
A 
Always hear me singin’ this song
B                     A 
Show me the way to go home.


[Verse]

A                D 
Buying drinks, a lot of ginks
A                     E 
Gathered in a swell cafe; A
A                 D 
Scotchman who had quite a few was
A       E      A 
Feeling rather gay

E 
He kept drinking with each guy
A      B     E 
As the hours fled
E 
When it came his time to buy
A       B      E 
He rose up and said


[Chorus: scottish accent; exaggeratedly roll the Rs; be funny]

A                            
Show me the way to go home, I’m
D                       A 
Tired and I wanna go to bed, I
A         
Had a wee drappie about an hour ago, and it’s
B                E 
Gone right to my head

A 
Wherever I may roam, o’er
D              A 
Land or sea or foam, you can
A 
Always hear me singin’ this song
B                     A 
Show me the way to go home.


[Chorus: back to normal]

A                            
Show me the way to go home, I’m
D                       A 
Tired and I wanna go to bed; I
A         
Had a little drink about an hour ago, and it’s
B                E 
Gone right to my head

A 
Wherever I may roam, o’er
D              A 
Land or sea or foam, you can
A 
Always hear me singin’ this song
B                     A 
Show me the way to go home.
