Good Night Irene

I played at Saint Andrews Church Folk Club in Bruxelles on Sept. 28th 2012 – for sure there are nice versions by Big Bill Broonzy or Leadbelly, Eric Clapton or Tom Waits, Willie Nelson or Ry Cooder – but the Irish people, far away from home in the European capital in Belgium, Brussels, gave their very best too …
merci to Catou in Bruxelles, she gave me the chance to visit Saint Andrew’s Church “open mic” …
compare, if time:
eric clapton – key: G major

tom waits – key: Eb major

ry cooder – key: E major

    Leadbelly’s is a favourite but these are lovely musicians who infect their listeners with joy, regardless of the lyrics. Mind you, you’ve not heard me sing it 😉


  4. Fun song that makes you want to sing along. It’s odd but for some reason I have always remembered the words to it yet I usually never remember lyrics.
    Thanks for the smile today.


  5. Enjoyed your guitar playing
    After a hectic time, it is wonderful to have the time again to visit the blogs


Hearing from you makes my day!
