Hey, a song written down in my register.
"Ol' Man River" (music by Jerome Kern, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II) is a song in the 1927 musical Show Boat".
Whether Paul Robeson, Frank Sinatra, or jazzed up by Bing Crosby, this is one great song.
I've sung it for years. In doing so, I've changed the words some to fit today and the plight of the working poor of any color or race.
