Without A Song
Tony Bennett
Words by Billy Rose and Edward Ilescu
Music by Vincent Youmans

This version did not chart but
It was a # 6 hit in 1930 for Paul Whiteman
Sung in the Broadway show "Great Day" by Lois Deppe and the Russell Wooding Jubilee
Singers
Became the theme song of Lawrence Tibbett


Without a song the day would never end
Without a song the road would never bend
When things go wrong, a man ain't got a friend
Without a song

That field of corn would never see a plow
That field of corn would be deserted now
A man is born but he's no good no-how
Without a song

I got my troubles and woe but sure as I know that Jordan will roll
I'll get along as long as a song is strong in my soul

I'll never know what makes the rain to fall
I'll never know what makes the grass so tall
I only know there ain't no love at all
Without a song
