Lyrics

1st verse<br />Gone are the days when my heart was young and gay,<br />Gone are my friends from the cotton fields away,<br />Gone from the earth to a better land I know,<br />I hear those gentle voices calling Old Black Joe.<br />

Chorus:
I'm coming, I'm coming,
for my head is bending low,
I hear those gentle voices calling
Old Black Joe.


2nd verse<br />Why do I weep, when my heart should feel no pain,<br />Why do I sigh that my friends come not again?<br />Grieving for forms now departed long ago.<br />I hear those gentle voices calling Old Black Joe.<br />

Chorus


3rd verse<br />Where are the hearts once so happy and so free?<br />The children so dear that I held upon my knee?<br />Gone to the shore where my soul has longed to go,<br />I hear those gentle voices calling Old Black Joe.<br />
