Oh, Bess, Oh Where’s My Bess?

Writer(s): George Gershwin / Ira Gershwin / Du Bose Heyward

I ain’ axin’ yo’ opinion,
Oh, Bess, oh where’s my Bess, won’t somebody tell me where?
I ain’ care what she say, I ain’ care what she done,
Won’t somebody tell me where’s my Bess? Bess, Oh, Lawd,
My Bess! I want her now, widout her I can’t go on.
I counted de days dat I was gone, till I got home to see her face.
Won’t somebody tell me where’s my Bess?
I want her so, my gal, my Bess, where is she?
Oh Gawd, in yo’ big Heav’n, please show me where I mus’ go,
Oh give me de strength, show me de way!
Tell me de truth, where is she, where is my gal, where is my Bess!
