"Goodnight Irene" as written by and John A Lomax Huddie Ledbetter....
Last Saturday night I got married
Last Saturday night I got wed
Now me and my true love are parted
Well, put a slug throgh my head

Irene, goodnight
Irene, goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Now some people like to go [choking noises]
Some people like to go [stabbing noises]
Now me I just truly love to do this once
And that is once... [Devil vocalisations]

Irene, goodnight
Irene, goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Irene, goodnight
Irene, goodnight
("GOODNIGHT IRENE, GOODNIGHT IRENE")
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams
