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

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

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

I love Irene God knows
I do love her till sea runs dry
And if Irene turns her back on me
I'll lay right down and I'll die.

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

--- Instrumental ---

Last Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down
Now me and my wife just parted
So I'll take another stroll downtown.

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

Hey, rambler stop your ramblin'
Stop stayin' out late at night
Go home to your wife and the family
Stay by the fireside bright.

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

--- Instrumental ---

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

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