(Chet Williamson)

Irene grew up in the country
Her daddy raised chickens and ducks
I called her up last Friday night
To see if she wanted to talk

Cho: Irene Goodnight, Irene Goodnight
Goodnight Irene, Goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Irene she drives a Plymouth
Sometimes she drives a truck
Irene was only twelve years old
When she first started to drive

Irene wins money at gambling
She's always had plenty of luck
One night out back of the barroom
A cowboy showed Irene his horse

Lyrics c. Chet Williamson, but feel free to use them. Send money if you
have a big hit record. If these lines do not break where they should, please
somebody tell me how to do that.

I've had very few objections to this song. Any impropriety is the hearer's
