"Goodnight Irene" as written by and John A. Lomax Huddie Ledbetter....
Irene goodnight Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene goodnight Irene I'll see you in my dreams

Last Saturday night I got married me and my wife settled down
Now me and my wife have parted so I'll take another stroll downtown
Irene goodnight Irene...

Sometimes I live in the country sometimes I live in town
Sometimes I take a great notion to jump in the river and drown
Irene goodnight Irene...
