Oh Bess, Oh Where's My Bess?

by Louis Armstrong

Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana.




Bess, oh, where's my Bess?
Won't somebody tell me where?
I don't care what she says
I don't care what she's done
Won't somebody tell me where's my Bess?

Bess, no, Lord, my Bess, I want her now
Without her I can't go on
I counted the days that 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, where is she?
Oh Lord, in your big heaven
Show me where I must go
Oh, give me the strength, show me the way
Tell me the truth, where is she? Where is my gal?
Where is my Bess?
