Exactly the reason we obey copyright laws.Percy Mayfield wrote the tune, Ray Charles performed it . something completely lost in your pirated “sheets”. and you should ask in Jazz.

Who does “Hit the road Jack” belong? I mean who composed it at the very first time? I remember it was a Ray Charles’ song but i’m not sure.
This was written by Ray’s good friend Percy Mayfield, an R&B singer who was badly disfigured in a car accident soon after he started performing. Mayfield cut back his touring and made his mark as a prolific songwriter, with many of his compositions performed by Charles.

When did Ray Charles write Hit the Road Jack?
Ray Charles sang “Hit The Road Jack” in 1961. But he didn’t write the song. It was written by Percy Mayfield.

Actually, Ray Charles did not write “Hit the Road Jack”. Percy Mayfield wrote this song in the early sixties and gave it to Ray Charles. on a sidenote: If you watch the movie “Ray”.the scene where Jamie Foxx is in a room messing around on a Fender Rhodes.the script actually mentions Percy before he starts to play the tune. Something like “Come on, let’s get to work ..Percy just sent me some music” etc.
