"Goodnight Irene" as written by and John A Lomax Huddie Ledbetter....


Goodnight Irene goodnight Irene

I'll see you in my dreams.


Sometimes I live in the country

Sometimes I live in town

Sometimes I take a big notion

To jump in the river and drown.


And say Irene goodnight, Irene

Irene goodnight

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene

I'll see you in my dreams.


I love Irene God knows

I do love her till sea runs dry

And if Irene turns her back on me

I'll lay right down and I'll die.


And say Irene goodnight, Irene

Irene goodnight

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene

I'll see you in my dreams.


--- Instrumental ---


Last Saturday night I got married

Me and my wife settled down

Now me and my wife just parted

So I'll take another stroll downtown.


Yeah, Irene goodnight, Irene

Irene goodnight

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene

I'll see you in my dreams.


Hey, rambler stop your ramblin'

Stop stayin' out late at night

Go home to your wife and the family

Stay by the fireside bright.


Yeah, Irene goodnight, Irene

Irene goodnight

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene

I'll see you in my dreams.


--- Instrumental ---


Irene, goodnight Irene

Irene goodnight

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene

I'll see you in my dreams.


Irene, goodnight Irene

Irene goodnight

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene

I'll see you in my dreams...
