Lead Belly

  Irene, good night, Irene, good night
  God night, Irene, good night, Irene
  I'll kiss you in my dreams

Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I lve in town
Sometimes I have a great notion
To jump in the river and drown

Last Saturday night I got marrioed
Me and my wife settled down
Now me and my wife have parted
Gonna take me a stroll uptown

I love Irene; God knows I do
I love her till the sea runs dry
And if Irene turns back on me
I'll take morphine and die

Quit your ramblin', quit your you gamblin'
Quit your stayin' out late at night
Go home to your wife and family
Sit down by the fireside bright
