My man’s gone now, ain’t no use in listening for his tired footsteps climbing up the stairs. Old man Sorrow’s come to keep me company, whispering beside me when I say my prayers. [Ah, ah, ah] Ain’t that I mind working, work and me is travelers. Journeying together to the promised land. But, old man Sorrow’s marching all the way with me, he’s telling me I’m old now since I lose my man. [Ah, ah, ah] Old man Sorrow is sitting by the fireplace, lying all the night beside me in the bed.

Telling me the same things [Tellin’ me] Morning noon and evening [Morning, noon, evening] That I’m all alone now [All alone] now that my man is dead. Dead! Since my man is dead.
