"Good Night, Irene" - Pete Seeger



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
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 dreams.

Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in the town

Sometimes I take a great notion
To jump In the river and drown.

Irene goodnight, Irene good night
Good night Irene, good night Irene
I'll see you in my dreams.

Stop rambling, stop your gambling
Stop staying out late at night
Go home to your wife and your family
Sit there by your fireside bright.

Irene goodnight, Irene good night
Good night Irene, good night Irene
I'll see you in my dreams.

Good night Irene, good night Irene
I'll see you in my dreams.
