GOODNIGHT IRENE
(H. Ledbetter - J. Lomax)
JOHNNY CASH (SUN, 1955)

Last Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settle down
Now me and my wife are parted
Gonna take another stroll down town

[Chorus]
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 town
Sometimes I take a full notion
To jump in the river and drown

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]
