Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live downtown
Sometimes I take a fool notion
To jump in the river and drown

Circle left
Irene goodnight
Left allemande and promenade her
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Last Saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down
Now me and my wife have parted
Think I'll take another stroll downtown


*I love Irene, God knows I do
I'll love her till the day I die
And if Irene should ever leave
I think I'd hang down my head and cry


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head (side) couples promenade halfway
Walk into the middle and square thru four
Four hands around and then you'll do the right & left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel and go
Centers square thru three hands around now
Swing the corner girl and promenade
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
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).
