A Good Man Is Hard to Find

"A Good Man Is Hard to Find" es un blues muy conocido cantado por Bessie Smith. De ahí tomó el título Flannery O'Connor para su célebre short-story del mismo nombre.


Lyrics

My heart is sad and I'm all alone
my man's treating me mean
I regret the day that I was born
And the man I ever seen

My happiness is less today
My heart is broke, that's why I say
Lord, a good man is hard to find
You always get another kind

Just when you think that he's your pal
You look and find him foolin' 'round some old gal
Then you rave, you all crave
You want to see him in his grave

So if your man is nice, take my advice;
Hug him in the morning, kiss him at night
Give him plenty lovin'; treat your good man right

Oh, a good man is so hard to find
We always get that roughed old kind
Just when you think that he's your pal
You like and find him hangin' 'round some old gal

Then you rave, how you crave
You wanna see him dead layin' in his grave

So if your man is nice, take my advice
Hug him in the morning, kiss him at night
Give him plenty love madam, treat your man right
'Cause a good man nowadays sure is hard to find


La canción se hizo tan famosa que también la cantaron otros vocalistas tan célebres como Frank Sinatra y Shelley Winters:
