Goodnight Irene  Bryan Ferry

(Huddie Ledbetter - known as Leadbelly)
Intro: E
I [E]asked your mother for y[B7]ou
She told me that you was too y[E]oung
I w[E]ish to the Lord[/E/F#/G#] I'd never s[A]een your face
or h[B7]eard your lying t[E]ongue
[E]Irene goodn[B7]ight, Irene goodn[E]ight
Goodn[E]ight Iren[/E/F#/G#]e, Goodni[A]ght Irene
I'll s[B7]ee you in my dr[E]eams
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/bryan_ferry/goodnight_irene_crd.html )
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
Stop ramblin', stop your gamblin'
stop stayin' out late at night
Go home to your wife and your family
sit down by the fireside bright
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
