INTRO
Oh, Bess, oh, where's my Bess?
Won't somebody tell me where?
I ain't care what she say, I ain't care what she done
Won't somebody tell me where's my Bess?  Bess
 
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, my Bess
Where is she?
 
Oh, Lord, in your big heaven
Please 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's my Bess?
