Goodnight, Irene

[Verse]
D                     A7
Asked your mother for you
                             D
She told me that you was too young
                                  G
I wish, dear Lord, that I’d never seen your face
    D         A        D
I’m sorry you ever was born.

[Chorus]
D      A7
Irene, Goodnight
           D
Irene, Goodnight
                      G
Goodnight, Irene, Goodnight, Irene
     D       A     D
I’ll get you in my dreams.

[Verse]
D                       A7
Sometimes I live in the country,
                    D
Sometimes I live in town.
                          G
Sometimes I haves a great notion
        D        A         D
To jump into the river and drown.

[Chorus]
D                      A7
Stop ramblin’ and stop gamblin’
                         D
Quit staying out late at night
                              G
Go home to your wife and your family
     D           A        D
Stay down by the fireside bright

[Chorus]
D                  A7
I loves Irene, God knows I do
                           D
Love her till the sea runs dry
                   G
If Irene turns her back on me
          D    A            D
I’m gonna take morphine and die
