My Man's Gone Now
Miles Davis Lyrics

My Man's Gone Now
Ain't No Use A Listenin'
For His Tired Footsteps
Climbin' Up The Stairs
Old Man Sorrow's
Come To Keep Me Company
Whisperin' Beside Me
When I Say My Prayers
When I Say My Prayers
He Come Aroud
He Come Up, He Come Around
Ain't That I Mind Workin'
Workin' Means Travelers
Journeyin' Togheter
To The Promised Land
But Old Man Sorrow
Mountin' All The Way With Me
Tell' Me That I'm Old Now
Since I Lose My Man
Since I Lose My Man
Since I Lose My Man

This particular song was recorded on July 22,, 1958 at Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York City. The album was the second collaboration between Miles Davis and Gil Evans, and is acknowledged by music critics as the best of their collaborations. Evans is justly regarded as the master of modern orchestration and Porgy and Bess shows him at his best.


+Noe Berengena The studio use to be a church, now it's condos. Use to go their in the 1980s

Douglas Carlson

The quintessentially most elegant song ever.

Who but Miles could get these Blues across and still sound the cool cat? Masterpiece album.


This is my favorite song off the album.... and from about 2:33 until 3:15 the tempo picks up and it sounds so classy. What genius this album was. Kudos to Gil Evans and Mile Davis!!!!


Great track. One of my favourites

Gene Partlow

In this song, you can hear shades of Sketches of Spain.
