Keith Richards – Goodnight Irene lyrics
Well Irene, goodnight Irene, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams
Last Saturday I got married
Me and the wife settled down
Now me and my wife we are parted
I think I'll go out on the town
'Cause sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in the town
Sometimes I take that great notion to jump in the river and drown
Irene goodnight Irene, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams
I love Irene, God knows I do
I'll love her 'till the seas run dry
If Irene should ever turn me down
I'd take morphine and die
Irene goodnight Irene, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams
Stop rambling, stop gambling
Stop staying out all night
Go home to your wife and your baby
And stay by your fireside bright
So Irene goodnight Irene, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams
