Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight,
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene,
I kiss you in my dreams.
Sometimes I live in the country,
Sometimes I live in town.
Sometimes I have a great notion
Jumping into the river and drown.
Stop rambling and stop gambling,
Quit staying out late at night.
Go home to your wife and your family,
Sit down by the fireside bright.
I asked your mother for you;
She told me that you was too young.
I wish to the Lord that I never seen your face,
I’m sorry you ever was born.
Last Saturday night I got married,
Me and my wife settled down.
Now me and my wife are parted,
Gonna take me a stroll uptown.
I love Irene, God knows I do,
Love her till the sea runs dry;
And if Irene turns her back on me,
I’m gonna take morphine and die.
You caused me to weep and you caused me to moan,
You caused me to leave my home.
Last word I heared her say,
“I want you to sing me a song.”VIEW COMPLETE FEWER LYRICS
