Goodnight Irene - Johnny Cash

Goodnight Irene

Johnny Cash

(H. Ledbetter - J. Lomax, 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

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


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
