Key E Writers, Hank Williams and Fred Rose
(E) YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE NOW,
YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE (B7) NOW,
YOU DON'T (E) EVER WANT TO (E7) PLAY, UN - (A) LESS YOU HAVE YOUR (E)
WAY,
BUT YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE (B7) WRONG TREE (E) NOW. (E7)
(A) TWO CAN PLAY THAT CHEATIN' GAME, (E) JUST AS GOOD AS ONE,
AND (F#7) I'M THE PERSON THAT CAN SHOW YOU (B7) HOW;
IF YOU (E) THINK I'M SECOND (E7) RATE, THEN YOU'RE (A) GONNA HAVE TO (E)
WAIT,
'CAUSE YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE (B7) WRONG TREE (E) NOW.
YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE NOW,
YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE NOW,
WHEN YOU GET DIS-SAT-IS-FIED, LET YOUR CONCIENCE BE YOUR GUIDE,
'CAUSE YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE NOW.
TWO CAN PLAY THAT CHEATIN' GAME, JUST AS GOOD AS ONE,
AND I'M THE PERSON THAT CAN SHOW YOU HOW;
IF YOU WANT TO CHASE A-BOUT, JUST DON'T LET ME FIND IT OUT,
'CAUSE YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE NOW.
YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE NOW,
YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE NOW,
JUST BE SURE YOU NEVER DO, WHAT YOU DON'T WANT DONE TO YOU,
'CAUSE YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE NOW.
TWO CAN PLAY THAT CHEATIN' GAME, JUST AS GOOD AS ONE,
AND I'M THE PERSON THAT CAN SHOW YOU HOW;
IF IT'S TIME YOU WANT TO SPEND, THEN YOU'RE ON THE LOSIN' END,
'CAUSE YOU'RE BARKIN' UP THE WRONG TREE NOW.
