Posted the "Bahamian" lyric here: The Island Song Book - When the Saints.
Black-White-white-black. Oy. Consider instead maybe:
Hymn, gospel, spiritual, Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal... it's always going to be Protestant.
Ergo, south and east of Lafayette, LA it's, mostly, going to be a tourist-carpetbagger tune, and extra $$$, because the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans (Black/White/Mauve) didn't really care for Protestant tent show tunes in their funerals or set lists.
