Goodnight Irene

Yeah I like John Martyn…
Goodnight Irene
God knows, I’ll love her till the stream runs dry
But she has turned her back on me
I will run up the river and say goodbye, goodbye.

Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live
Sometimes I live in the town
Sometimes I run down the river and jump in
Sometimes I take a foolish notion
To jump in the deep blue ocean.

Goodnight Irene, goodnight
I’m going to get you one time in my dreams
Get you out of my dreams.

But if I ever turn her beautiful back on me
I’m going jump in the ocean with a bowl of morphine
And try to die
Irene, goodnight
Goodnight Irene.
