Lover Man (Oh, Where Can You Be?)

Lyrics ,Music:Jimmy Davis, Roger ("Ram") Ramirez, James Sherman

The song was publishe 1941.

It is particularly associated with Billie Holiday, for whom it was written,
and her version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1989.
Holiday's version reached #5 on the R&B chart and #16 on pop in 1945.
In July 1946, Charlie Parker recorded a rendition of "Lover Man",
considered by many to be one of his most passionate recordings,
during which he was severely intoxicated.
Dial Records producer Ross Russell had to hold Parker up
to the microphone during the recording.
Barbra Streisand recorded "Lover Man" for her 1967 album,
Simply Streisand, with an arrangement by David Shire.
She also sang the song live during her 1994 concert tour.

I don't know why but I'm feeling so sad
I long to try something I never had
Never had no kissin'
Oh, what I've been missin'
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

The night is cold and I'm so alone
I'd give my soul just to call you my own
Got a moon above me
But no one to love me
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

I've heard it's said
That the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream

I go to bed with a prayer
That you'll make love to me
Strange as it seems

Someday we'll meet
And you'll dry all my tears
Then whisper sweet
Little things in my ears
Hugging and a-kissing
Oh, what I've been missing
Lover man, oh, where can you be?
