E                         B7
Last Saturday night I got married
                      E
Me and my wife settle down
              E7       A  F#m
Now me and my wife are parted
          B7                       E
I'm gonna take another stroll down town

I'll see you in my dreams

E                       B7
Sometimes I live in the country
                    E
Sometimes I live in town
            E7         A  F#m    
Sometimes I take great notion
   B7                      E
To jump into the river and drown

E         B7
Irene goodnight

Goodnight Irene
    A      F#m
Goodnight Irene

I'll see you in my dreams

     E
Stop rambling
          B7
Stop your gambling
                         E
Stop staying out late at night
                E7       A   F#m
Go home to your wife and family
     B7                 E
Stay there by your fire site .....
