Is this some kind of joke? My "Make it Big" CD is missing from my desk.

Here you go sweetie!

"WAKE ME UP BEFORE YOU GO GO"
by Wham!

Transposed by MikeJJ, contact: Please register to see emails in posts.

This was worked out purely as an act of brotherly goodwill for my 80's
loving sister. Let me make it clear that I am not the owner of any
Wham tapes (no CDs back then), nor do I dress in all white.

It is actually quite a nice song if slowed down and played on acoustic
with a little more feeling than the original. Get the little melody riff
happening (see down below for some TAB) - it's sickly sweet. I prefer to
sing "wake me up before you go-girl" as 'go-go' is far too 80's for me.

Capo @ 4th (only because that's the lowest I can sing "boom-boom" while
still struggling to squeal the "up" in the chorus).

In 4/4 time.



VERSE:

C Am
You put the boom...
F Am - G
You send my soul...
C Am
Jitterbug...
F Am - G
Goes a bang...
F
But some..
Am
Something...
F C - G
My best...
F Am
Left me...
F G (slide F barre shape to the 3rd fret)
I was dreaming...



CHORUS:

C Am
Wake me..
F C
Don't..
C Am
Wake me...
F G (open G)
I don't want..
C Am
Wake me...
F C
'Cause I'm...
C Am
Wake me...
F G C
Take me...
Am Am (sing down for "high")
I wanna hit...


SECOND VERSE, JUST LIKE THE FIRST, ETC...

You push the grey...

I think thats my favorite picture of George and that other Wham guy. You know, the other guy, besides George, who was in Wham.
