Goodnight Irene.
Ry Cooder.
Album: Chicken Skin Music.

Intro: E E7/G# A6 F#m7 B A/B B/F# E B E

E                       B7  B/F#
I asked your mother for you, 
    Baug             F#7     E     A E
She told me that you was too young, 
E                Em         A         F#m7
I wish dear Lord never have seen your face,
        B7             B/F#      E
And I'm sorry that you ever been born. 

E          B7   F#m6 B
Irene good night, 
B          E
Irene good night, 
          E          F#m   F#m7
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene,
     B7      B6    E      B E
I'll get you in my dreams.

E                        B/F#
Sometimes I lives in the country, 
B/F#                 E
Sometimes I lives in town, 
E                        A     F#m7
Sometimes I have a great notion, 
        B7         B6      E
To jump into the river and drown. 

E           B7 F#6 B
Irene good night, 
B          E     A E
Irene good night, 
    E                F#m   F#m7
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene,
     B7      B6    E     E7/G# 
I'll get you in my dreams.

Break: A6 B E Abm7 E B6 E B7 E A 
E E7 A F#m7 B7 B/F# E B6 B B7 E A 
F#m7 B A/B B/F# B7

E                  B7
I loves Irene, God knows I do, 
Bbmaj7                      E
Loves her till the sea runs dry, 
E                  A         F#m7
If Irene turns her back on me, 
          Bbmaj7            E
I'm gonna take morphine and die. 

E                      B       B7
Stop rambling and stop gambling, 
B7           F#          E
Quit staying out late at night, 
E         E7             Bm6      A     F#m7
Come home into your wife and your family, 
    B7          B/F#     E      B6
Sit down by the fireside bright. 

E         B7   F#6 B
Irene goodnight, 
B         E
Irene goodnight, 
E                   F#m    F#m7
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene, 
     B7      B6    E     E7 A6 F#m7 B B7 E
I'll get you in my dreams.
