Goodnight Irene
I asked your mother for you
She told me that you was too young
I wished to the Lord I'd never seen your face
See what you gone done

Irene goodnight
Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene
Goodnight Irene
I'll get you in my dreams

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

Irene goodnight
Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene
Goodnight Irene
I'll get you in my dreams

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

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

Irene goodnight
Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene
Goodnight Irene
I'll get you in my dreams
