“Sence You Went Away” James Weldon Johnson

“Seems lak to me de stars don’t shine so bright,

Seems lak to me de sun done loss his light,

Seems lak to me der’s nothin’ goin’ right,

Sence you went away.

 

Seems lak to me de sky ain’t half so blue,

Seems lak to me dat ev’ything wants you,

Seems lak to me I don’t know what to do,

Sence you went away.

 

Seems lak to me dat ev’ything is wrong,

Seems lak to me de day’s jes twice es long,

Seems lak to me de bird’s forgot his song,

Sence you went away.

 

Seems lak to me I jes can’t he’p but sigh,

Seems lak to me ma th’oat keeps gettin’ dry,

Seems lak to me a tear stays in ma eye,

Sence you went away.”
