Who is Sister Irene in "Going Down" by Freddie King?

  • I'm working on Going Down by Freddie King and I don't understand the reference of this sentence:

    I'm going back to Chattanooga and sleep on sister Irene's porch

    I can't find any reference from my European point of view. Who's sister Irene?

  • Tetsujin

    with no certainty, I'd guess at the nun who ran the children's home, when he was young.

    His character is a homeless man, a hobo - presumably he had his best times back there, where he was looked after as a child.
