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

     C             G            Am            Em
When I was just sixteen I stood waiting for a dream
   F                    G          C                F
At Barker Street Bus Station every night
       C               G           Am                Em
When I tried to get it on she just looked at me with scorn
   F                 G               C                F     C
My courage turned to fear and I took flight


          Am                   F             G          C
For those looks they seemed to say you ain’t nothin' go away
                 Am           F          G                 C
You’re just some face in some crowd so I walked home and I vowed
          F  C   F         C                          F    C    F
I'm gonna be somebody someday


    C              G             Am           Em
Her name was Irene Wilde Oh such beauty for a child
         F              G             C               F
When she started dating boys I nearly died
       C                G            Am              Em
Well I could not barely stand seeing anyone hold her hand
  F                   G              C                F     C
I thought I'd have to crawl away and hide


      Am              F           G            C
In my mother's Sunday room I’d compose so many tunes
                 Am          F             G                C
They was all the same just a frame for the name and just to say
          F  C   F        C            C  bridge
I'm gonna be somebody someday


Am            F            G                 C
Wild was your name, I soon left that country town
           Am                    F
I’ve been around, I've seen some things,
               G                   C
I’ve seen some ups, I've seen some downs
Am                 F            G                 C
Smile through your shock as you hear your name outloud
         Am          F
I’s that face in the crowd
         G                   C
I didn't dig it I'm much too proud


C  F  C  F  C  F


     C             G            Am               Em
When I was just sixteen I stood waiting for that dream
   F                    G          C                 F
At Barker street bus station non-affair
       C                 G          Am              Em
At the time it seemed so sad but it didn't turn out bad
       F                G                 C           F   C
if she hadn't turned me down I'd still be there


       Am               F
Well I think most folks agree
         G                   C
A little put-down makes them see
              Am                   F
they aint the chain they're just a link
          G               C
and thats why she made me think
          F  C   F     F  C   F     F  C   F          C       F  C   F  C
I'm gonna be somebody, be somebody, be somebody – someday

Clearly wrong. 2 stars. It's almost all wrong. No Am in the song, it's clearly Bb. I've post a new version. Best regards.
