rest of lyrics:
Why do I weep, when my heart should feel no pain,
Why do I sigh that my friends come not again?
Grieving for forms now departed long ago.
I hear their gentle voices calling Old Black Joe.

Where are the hearts once so happy and so free?
The children so dear that I held upon my knee?
Gone to the shore where my soul has longed to go,
I hear their gentle voices calling Old Black Joe.

and that's all! i hope this helps! it's a shame this song didnt get as popular as 
Fosters other compositions
like "camptown races" or "oh susannah".

rock on!
-Bert
