​Goodnight Irene

This song is by Die, Emperor! Die! and appears on the album Live at Burned Out Bright's Last Show (2003) and on the album Acoustic (2003).

I asked your mother for you
She told me that you was too young
I wish the lord I never seen your face
Or heard your lying tongue

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

Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in town
Sometimes I have a great notion
To Jump in the river and drown

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

Stop ramblin', and stop your gamblin'
Stop staying out late at night
Come home to your wife and family
To die by the fireside bright

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

I love Irene, God knows I do
Love her until the sea run dry
If Irene turns her back on me
I'm gonna take a morphine and die

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

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

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

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