Red Foley – Goodnight Irene lyrics

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

Last Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down
Me and my wife have parted
Gonna take another stroll down town.

REPEAT CHORUS

Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in town
Sometimes I take a fool notion
To jump in the river and drown.

REPEAT CHORUS

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

REPEAT CHORUS
