Tekst Edit

Gone are the days
When my heart was young and gay,
Gone are my friends
From the cotton fields away,
Gone from the earth
To a better land I know,

I hear their gentle voices
Calling: "Poor old Joe."
I'm coming,
I'm coming,
for my head is bending low,
I hear their gentle voices
Calling: "Poor old Joe."

Why do I weep,
When my heart should feel no pain,
Why do I sigh
That my friends come not again?
Grieving for forms
Now departed long ago.

Where are the hearts
Once so happy and so free?
The children so dear
That I held upon my knee?
Gone to the shore
Where my soul has longed to go,
