Negro Folk Songs

i was looking through some of my music that I use to sing when I was on the church chior and I came across a little booklet that had some negro folk songs with arrangments by men like Francis Ames, Oliver J. Williams, Walter F. Anderson and Marion Downs. When I was a little boy my father took me down south to Georgia and I remember going to this old wooden church with bare wood floors and hand made benches. The deacons would get up and hold devotions with out no musicle instuments. They would do what they called singing in meter. Some one would stomp out a slow beat on the floor and every one would sing acopello. One song would go like this:

Burden Down

Burden down, Lord, burden down, Lord,

Since I lay my Burden down.- Burden down, Lord, Since I laid my burden down.

Wonder will my sister know me .....

Since I lay my Burden down.- Burden down, Lord, Since I laid my burden down,

Wounder will my brother know me .....

Since I lay my Burden down.- Burden down, Lord, Since I laid my burden down

Get on Board

Get on board, little children. Get on board, little children, Get on board, litle children, There's room for many more.

  1. The Gospel train's a-com-in, _ I hear it just an han; I hear the car wheels rol-in; _ an'rumlin' theru the lan;
  2. I hear the train a-com-in; A-com-in'round the curve, She's loos-en'd all her steam an breaks, she's strainoin' ev-'ry nerve.
  3. The fare is cheap and all can go, The rich and poor and there, No sec-ond class a-board this train, no dif-frence in the fare.

I lot of theas songs would express the hope and dreams of a better life then the one they had.

Good News

Good news! the chariots' coming. God news! The chariot's com-ing. Good news the chariot's com-ing, And I don't want it to leave me behind.

  1. There is a long white robe in heav-en I know, A long white robe in the heaven I know.
  2. Pair of wings...
  3. Shoes...
  4. stary crown
  5. Golden harp

A long white robe in the heaven I know and I don't want it to leave me behind.

Then there was those that knew that they were saved without a dobt.

I know the Lord

O I know the Lord,- I know the Lord,- I know the Lord's laid his hands on me. O hands on me.

  1. Did ev-er you-see the like before KIng Je-sus preaching to the poor
  2. O was-n't - that a hap-py day when Jesus washed my sins a away.
  3. He heal'd the sick and raised the dead,

I know the Lord's laid his hands on me
