Nanny Blues
I hear my nanny crying Lawd I hear her moan Weeping for her children She raised up as her own Though as dark as midnight Callin' out for me
I can still remember
How she sat me on her knew She held me to her bosom Rockin' me to sheep
I hear those mournful tones God rest her soul to keep

For the foothills we did ramble From the flatlands we did roam I would no longer feel her kiss We left our house and home
I could no longer see her But I felt her in my soul My heart did break
It was no longer whole
I know that she's still with me She lives there in my soul This gift she gives me
It was there all along
