My Man's Gone Now (Music Inspired by the Musical Porgy and Bess)

Mimma Barra

Lyrics

My man's gone now

Ain't no use a listenin'

For his tired footsteps

Climbin' up the stairs

Old man sorrow's

Come to keep me company

Whisperin' beside me

When I say my prayers

Ain't that I mind workin'

Workin' means travelers

Journeyin' together

To the promised land

But old man sorrow

Mountin' all the way with me

Tell' me that I'm old now

Since I lose my man

Since I lose my man

Old man sorrow's

Sitting by the fireplace

Lying all night long

But I'm in the bed

Telling me the same thing

Mornin', noon and evening

That I'm all alone now

Since may man is dead

Since my man is dead

For every mood
