Last Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down
Now, me and my wife are parted
Gonna take a little stroll downtown

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

Stop ramblin'. Stop that gamblin'
Stop staying out late at night
Go home to your wife and family
Stay there by the fireside, bright

Irene, goodnight. 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
And if irene turns her back on me
I'd take morphine and die

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

HUDDIE LEDBETTER, JOHN A LOMAX
