Goodnight Irene - Bryan Ferry

I asked your mother for you
She told me that you was too young
I wish to the Lord I'd never seen your face
Or heard your lying tongue

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

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

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

I love Irene God knows I do
Love her till the sea run dry
And if Irene turns her back on me
I'm gonna take morphine and die

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