(A) Last Saturday night I got (E7)married
Me and my wife settled (A) down
Now me and my wife are (D) parted
Going to (A) take a little stroll (A) downtown

Irene good (E7) night
Irene good (A) night
Goodnight Irene, good (D) night Irene
I'll (A) see you (E7) in my (A) dreams

Sometimes I live in the (E7) country
Sometimes I live in (A) town
Sometimes I take a great (D) notion
to (A) jump into the (E7) river and (A) drown

Irene good (E7) night
Irene good (A) night
Goodnight Irene, good (D) night Irene
I'll (A) see you (E7) in my (A) dreams

Stop ramblin', stop your (E7) gamblin'
Stop staying out late at (A) night
Go home to your wife and (D) family
Sit (A) down by the (E7) fireside (A) bright

Irene good (E7) night
Irene good (A) night
Goodnight Irene, good (D) night Irene
I'll (A) see you (E7) in my (A) dreams

You caused me to weep
You (E7) caused me to moan
You caused me to leave my (A) home
But the very last words that I (D) heard her say
was (A) "Sing me (E7) one more (A) song"
