Released November 2004

Saturday night, I got married
Me and my wife settled down
Now me and my wife are parting
Going to take another walk downtown

Goodnight Irene, goodnight
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 few notions
I want to jump overboard in a river and drown

Goodnight Irene, goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Stop rambling, stop your gambling
Stop staying out late every night
Stay home with your wife and children
Stay by the fireside light

Goodnight Irene, goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams
