"Goodnight Irene" as written by and John A Lomax Huddie Ledbetter....
At Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down
But me and my wife have parted
I'm gonna take another stroll downtown

Irene goodnight (goodnight Irene)
Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll get you in my dream

Stop your ramblin'
Stop your gamblin'
Stop stayin' out late, late at night
Go home to your wife and your family
Sit down by your fireside so bright

Irene goodnight
Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll get you in my dream

I love Irene and got new I do
Still the sea runs dry
And if Irene ever turns her back on me
I'm gonna take morphine and die

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll get you in my dream

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll get you in my dream

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll get you in my dream
