Walter, Walter Henry
I say Walter Henry Hagan
You done gone and broke my heart
Walter, Walter Henry
You know that I believed you
When you swore we'd never part
Well you said you had to have me
And well you dang well did
You took me from my country home
When I was just a kid
And you took me off to Boston
Put a baby on my knee
Left me to dangle-dingle
So far from Tennessee

Now Patrick might have been one
But you ain't been no saint
But a good ole' Irish boy
They say we'll always have this drink
And you just won't stop chasin'
All those other woman around
A' ramblin' and a'gamblin'
Throwin' Irish whiskey down

Walter, Walter Henry
Walter Henry Hagan
You don't listen when I call
Walter, Walter Henry
Of all the men I've ever loved
I loved you best of all
Oh play one for ol' Walter Henry boys

Walter, Walter Henry
Walter Henry Hagan
You done left your mark on me
Walter, Walter Henry
If you ever sober up
I'm waitin' back in Tennessee
If you ever sober up
I'm waitin' back in Tennessee

Walter, Walter Henry
Yoddle-le-ee-hee
Yoddle-le-ee-hee
Walter Henry Hagan
You done left your mark on me
