My Man's Gone Now lyrics

My mans gone now
Aint no use a listenin
For his tired footsteps
Climbin up the stairs
Old man sorrows
Come to keep me company
Whisperin beside me
When I say my prayers
When I say my prayers
He come aroud
He come up, he come around
Aint that I mind workin
Workin means travelers
Journeyin togheter
To the promised land
But old man sorrow
Mountin all the way with me
Tell me that Im old now
Since I lose my man
Since I lose my man
Since I lose my man
