黒人の老僕ジョーの哀感を歌ったもの。

1.
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 "Old Black Joe".
I'm coming, I'm coming, for my head is bending low:
I hear those gentle voices calling, "Old Black Joe".

2.
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.
I hear their gentle voices calling "Old Black Joe".
I'm coming, I'm coming, for my head is bending low:
I hear those gentle voices calling, "Old Black Joe".
