 I ain' axin' yo' opinion.
 Oh, Bess, oh where's my Bess,
 Won't somebody tell me where?
 I ain' care what she say,
 I ain' care what she done,
 won't somebody tell me where's my Bess?
 Bess, Oh, Lawd,

My Bess! I want her now,
Widout her I can't go on.
I counted de days dat 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 Gawd, in yo' big Heav'n
please show me where I mus' go,
oh give me de strength, show me de way!
Tell me de truth, where is she, where is my gal,
where is my Bess!
