Roll them bones
A woman is a sometime thing
The killing of Robbins
Gone, gone, gone
My man's gone now
Leaving for the promised land
It takes a long pull to get there
I got plenty of nothing
I hates your strutting style
"Picnics is all right
Bess, you is my woman now
Oh, I can't sit down
It ain't necessarily so
What you want with Bess?
Oh, Doctor Jesus
"I was powerful sick
I loves you, Porgy
The storm approaches
Oh, the Lord shake the heaven
A red headed woman
Oh, Doctor Jesus (reprise)
Clara, don't you be downhearted
The death of Crown
There's a boat that's leaving soon for New York
Bess, oh where's my Bess?
Oh Lord, I'm on my way.
