Something for Thursday

Featuring black musicians this month in honor of Black History Month, here's a good one. If your spine isn't tingled by this, I don't know what to do for you. Here is William Warfield singing "Ol' Man River" from Showboat. Just listen to the lyrics of that final verse:

I get weary,
and sick of tryin';
I'm tired of livin',
and scared of dyin'.
But ol' man river--
he just keeps rollin'

Amazing song, sung in what must be one of the great vocal performances of all time.
