Subject: Origins: I am come from the land of Egypt
I heard Mike Seeger sing this song, and I think (maybe) he attributed it to Isaac Watts. Is that the source?
Hail there and where do you come from? Hallelujah (2)
Oh I am come from the land of Egypt Hallelujah(2)
Hail there and where do you bound for? Hallelujah (2)
Oh I am bound for the land of glory Hallelujah (2)
