Thread Name: Slavery-Era Song, 'Run, ======, Run'
Subject: RE: Slavery-Era Song, 'Run, ======, Run'
Well, these lines from one of the versions on the arlier thread look pretty much like a spiritual to me:

I'm goin' away, goin' away,
I'm 'most done ling'rin' here;
I'm goin' away to Galilee,
And I'm 'most done ling'rin' here.

I have hard trials on my way
'Most done ling'rin' here;
But still King Jesus hears me pray,
'Most done ling'rin' here;
