Heptune presents:

Why Is A Good Man So Hard To Find?

    (Davis)

Transcribed from vocals by Midge Williams, with Lil "Brown Gal" Armstrong and Her Dixielanders, recorded March 18, 1940.
From Lil Hardin Armstrong and Her Swing Orchestra, 1936-1940, Chronological Classics, vol. 564.

Oh, life for me is endless misery,
Guess it was just meant to be that way.
For you see,
Cupid seems to be inclined to be unkind,
Mm, why is a good man so hard to find?

In my dreams, he comes to me,
Oh, that dreams were reality;
But, alas, my reveries, all bring to mind,
Why is a good man so hard to find?

In my dreams, he comes to me,
Oh, that dreams were reality;
Oh, but, alas, my reveries, all bring to mind,
Why is a good man so hard to find?
Hard to find!
