Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Last Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down

The men star right, travel one time around
Allemande the corner, weave the ring
Irene goodnight
Swing the girl around and promenade her
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade go just halfway
Walk in, square thru 4
Go all the way around, a right & left thru
1/2 sashay, pass thru, trade by
Square thru and on your 3rd hand, swing
Swing the corner, promenade
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Goodnight Irene
 
 

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).
