Ol Man River’” (music by Jerome Kern, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II) is a song in the 1927 musical Show Boat that contrasts the struggles and hardships of African Americans with the endless, uncaring flow of theMississippi River. It is sung from the point of view of a black stevedore on a showboat, and is the most famous song from the show. The song is meant to be performed in a slow tempo, it is sung complete once in the musical’s lengthy first scene by the stevedore “Joe” who travels with the boat, and, in the stage version, is heard four more times in brief reprises. Joe serves as a sort of musical one-man Greek chorus, and the song, when reprised, comments on the action, as if saying, “This has happened, but the river keeps rolling on anyway.”

Lyrics Ol Man River Sheet Music Frank Sinatra

“Ol Man River Sheet Music Lyrics Frank Sinatra”

Dere’s an ol’ man called de Mississippi
Dat’s de ol’ man dat I’d like to be
What does he care if de world’s got troubles
What does he care if de land ain’t free

Ol’ man river, dat ol’ man river
He mus’ know sumpin’, but don’t say nuthin’
He jes’ keeps rollin’
He keeps on rollin’ along

He don’ plant taters, he don’t plant cotton
An’ dem dat plants’ em is soon forgotten
But ol’man river
He jes’ keeps rollin’ along

You an’ me, we sweat an’ strain
Body all achin’ an’ wracked wid pain,
Tote dat barge! Lif’ dat bale!
Git a little drunk an’ you lands in jail

Ah gits weary an’ sick of tryin’
Ah’m tired of livin’ an’ skeered of dyin’
But ol’ man river
He jes’ keeps rolling’ along

Niggers all work on de Mississippi**
Niggers all work while de white folks play**
Pullin’ dose boats from de dawn to sunset
Gittin’ no rest till de judgement day

(Don’t look up an’ don’t look down)
(You don’ dar’st make de white boss frown)
(Bend your knees an’ bow your head)
(An’ pull dat rope until you’re dead)

Let me go ‘way from the Mississippi
Let me go ‘way from de white man boss
Show me dat stream called de river Jordan
Dat’s de ol’ stream dat I long to cross

(Ol’ man river, dat ol’ man river)
(He mus’ know sumpin’, but don’t say nothin’)
(He just keeps rollin’)
(He keeps on rollin’ along)

Long, low river
Forever keeps rollin’

(Don’ plant taters, he don’ plant cotton)
(And dem dat plants’ em is soon forgotten)
(But ol’ man river
(He jes’ keeps rollin’ along)

Long low river
Keeps singin’ dis song

You an’ me, we sweat an’ strain
Body all achin’ and wracked wid pain
Tote dat barge! Lift dat bale!
Git a little drunk and ya lands in jail

Ah gits weary an’ sick o’ tryin’
Ah’m tired o livin’ an’ skeered o’ dyin’
But ol’ man river
He jes’ keeps rollin’ along!


**The lines “Niggers all work on de Mississippi, Niggers all work
while de white folks play” were sung in the original 1927 Broadway
Show. They were changed for the 1936 film version to “Darkies all
work on de Mississippi, Darkies all work while de white folks play”.
By the time of the 1946 Broadway revival, the lines had changed again
to “Colored folks work on de Mississippi, Colored folks work while de
white folks play”. And soon after, in the film “Till the Clouds Roll
By”, they had become “Here we all work on de Mississippi, Here we all
work while de white folks play”.
