Lyrics:

Chorus:
G                                           G
Irene good - night, Irene good - night 
         G7                        G
Good -night Irene, good - night Irene 
     D7                G
I'll see you in my dreams 

G                               D7
Sometimes I live in the country 
                           G
Sometimes I live in town 
                   G7      C
Sometimes I have a great notion 
     D7                            G
To jump into the river and drown 

Chorus 

Quit ramblin' and quit gamblin' 
Quit stayin' out late at night 
Stay home with your wife and family 
Sit down by the fireside bright 

Chorus

I asked your mother for you 
She told me you was too young 
I wished to God I'd never seen your face 
I's sorry you ever was born 

Chorus

I love Irene, God knows I do 
I'll love her till the seas run dry 
And if Irene turns her back on me 
I'd take morphine and die 

Chorus 

You cause me to weep, you cause me to mourn 
You cause me to leave my home 
But the very last words I heard her say 
Was "Please sing me one more song" 

Chorus
