John McCauley's "Goodnight, Irene"

"Goodnight, Irene," a song written in the 19th Century (alternatively known as "Irene, Goodnight,") has been recorded in many versions by various artists.  Most recently, it appeared on Deer Tick's "Born on Flag Day" album as the hidden track following the song, "Stung," and moments of silence.  

Here is a video of John McCauley (Deer Tick's frontman) doing a solo live performance, in which the lighting is so dim the title of the song seems quite appropriate.
