The Randolph version, posted by rich r above, is also in Duncan Emrich, American Folk Poetry (p. 379). The Stanley Brothers sing it as "The Angel of Death" in Hymns and Sacred Songs (King). Paul Robeson's recording "Dere's a Man Goin' Roun'" is in The Power and the Glory (Columbia/Legacy). Unknown artist's version "There's a Man Going 'Round Taking Names" is in Gospel Classics (Document). Marion Williams' version is "There's a Man" in Great Gospel Women (Shanachie).
