Well thanks, I had no idea it had been recorded so often, though I knew " I ain't got no home". The book was written around '36, so he could have gotten it from some of the recordings mentioned. He does talk about Mitchell's Christian singers, maybe they did it? He could have heard it in some church in Alabama, where he was. Also, he might not have quoted it correctly.
