My Man's Gone Now

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong and appears on the album Porgy & Bess (1959).

My man's gone now
Ain't no use alistening
For his tired foot-steps
Climbin' up the stairs. Ah
Old Man Sorrows
Come to keep me comp'ny
Whisperin' beside me
When I say my prayers. Ah

Ain't that I mind workin'·
Work an' I are travellers
Journeyin' together
To the promised land
But Old Man Sorrow's
Marchin' all the way with me
Tellin' me I'm old now
Since I lost my man
Since I lost my man

Old Man Sorrow
Sittin' by the fireplace
Lyin' all night long
By me in the bed
Tellin' me the same thing
Morning, noon and evening
That I'm all alone now
Since my man is dead. Ah
Since my man is dead! Ah
