Cue Sheet


Left allemande the corner, docey partner
The gents star left around that land
Pick up partner arm around, star promenade the town
The girls backtrack once around, box the gnat
Pull her by, left allemande the corner
Dosado then promenade that ring
Good night Irene, good night Irene
I'll swing you in my dreams

FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Heads (sides) right & left thru and turn the lady
Star thru, then do a little dosado
Once around swing thru, the boys trade you do
Turn thru, then go left allemande
Pass your own and swing the right hand lady
Left allemande, then promenade and sing
Good night Irene, good night Irene
I'll swing you in my dreams


I'll see you in my dreams

Goodnight Irene Lyrics ID: 830

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

Last Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down,
Now me and my wife are parted
I'm going to take another stroll downtown.

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.

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

Stop ramblin', stop gamblin'
Stop stayin' out late at night
Go home to your wife and family
And stay by the fireside bright.

I love Irene God knows I do
Love her to the day I die
If Irene turns her back on me
I'll take morphine and die

Lyrics by Huddie Ledbetter and John Lomax.
Recorded by Mitch Miller Singers (1950).
