Wikipedia has an article on
Goodnight Irene
When I asked your mother for you
She told me you were too young
Now I wish I had never even seen your face
Or heard your lying tongue

So Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down
Now me and my wife are parted
I'm gonna take another stroll downtown

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

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

Oh, stop your carousin', stop you gamblin'
Stayin out late at night
Go home to your wife and family
Sit down by the fireside, bright

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

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