Good Night Irene (Leadbelly) Last saturday night, I got married, Me and my wife settled down Now me and my wife are parted, I'm gonna take another stroll downtown Sometimes I live in the country, sometimes I live in town Sometimes I take a great notion, To jump into the river and drown. I love Irene, God knows I do, I'll love her till the seas run dry But if Irene should turn me down, I'd take the morphine and die. Stop rambling, stop your gambling Stop staying out late at night, Go home to your wife and your family Stay there by your fireside bright. DG
