Goodnight Irene

For tonight’s Daily Dose, let’s go back to an old Leadbelly tune, Goodnight Irene. Lots of people know the melody and the chorus but have never really listened to the lyrics. It’s one sad tune.

I love Tom Waits’ take on it…

Here’s a curious combo…The Killer and Van Morrison…

Now here’s Ry Cooder with Flaco Jimenez on squeezbox.

Finally let’s go back to 1932 and listen to Leadbelly perform his own song…



  1. Mmm … quite a variety here. Thanks for digging these up, I spent an enjoyable break watching through them.

Have your say...
