Cléoma Breaux with Joe Falcon and Ophy Breaux. Vocal solo with accordion, guitar.

Le seul homme j’aimais
Il m’a quitté moi toute seule.
Pour s’en aller avec une autre que moi.
Oh, moi j’prends ça si dur.
Moi j’prie jour et nuit pour il s’en revienne avec moi.

Moi j’vois pas quoi j’ai fait
Pour qu’il me quitte dans tous les chagrins.

Il m’a dit que j’l’avais perdu, ont jamais oublier.
J’ai tant prie jour et nuit pour lui s’en revienne avec moi.

Quand il a quitté la maison
Il m’a dit de l’observer.
Pourtant moi j’avais fait, pouvais donc jamais l’oublier.
Il m’a dit d’attacher le crepe noir sur la porte
Parce que lui il aurait jamais revenu.

The only man I have loved
He has left me all alone.
To go off with another than me
Oh, my great drama, it’s so hard,
I pray day and night he’ll return to me.

I don’t know what I did
To make him leave me with all this grief.
He told me that I’ve lost him and he will never remember me.
I pray so much day and night that he will return to me.

When he left the house
He told me to look at him.
But I could never have forgotten.
He told me to tie a black crepe on the door
Because he will never return.

Hearkening back to the “unhappy love” theme of much of the previous disc, “C’est Si Triste Sans Lui” tells the story of a girl abandoned by her lover.
