Po' Boy Blues
by Langston Hughes


When I was home de Sunshine seemed like gold.
When I was home de Sunshine seemed like gold.
Since I come up North de Whole damn world's turned cold.

I was a good boy, Never done no wrong.
Yes, I was a good boy, Never done no wrong,
But this world is weary An' de road is hard an' long.

I fell in love with A gal I thought was kind.
Fell in love with A gal I thought was kind.
She made me lose ma money An' almost lose ma mind.

Weary, weary, Weary early in de morn.
Weary, weary, Early, early in de morn.
I's so weary I wish I'd never been born.
