Subject: RE: Origin: Turtledove Done Drooped His Wings
This song was sung on the plantations down here in Tennessee and Georgia for years. My granny used to sing it at funerals. What yall keep referring to as "sasalido on salasaree" isn't English it's Hebrew. And my granny used to sing a longer version with other Hebrew words in it. She used to always tell us we were Israelites under the lineage of David. And that we were the chosen people of god.
