"Goodnight Irene" as written by and John A Lomax Huddie Ledbetter....
[Chorus]
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 settle down,
Now me and my wife are parted,
I'm gonna take another stroll in town.

[Chorus]

Sometimes I live in the country,
Sometimes I live in town,
Sometimes I have a great notion,
To jump in the river and drown.

[Chorus]
