Hi,

I was looking at the spitiual, "Ain't Going To Tarry Here" and can't find any source info. Here are some lyrics:

Sweep it clean
Ain't going to tarry here

I sweep my house with the gospel room
Ain't going to tarry here

Sweep it clean
Ain't going to tarry here

Usually you'd think there would be alternate versions with "Ain't Gwine Tarry" or "Ain't Gonna Tarry" but I can't find any.

The Folk index says it's also:

Lisbon [Laws N 8/Sh 121]

Anyone have info? Any good versions I can hear on-line? Good recordings?

Richie

I looked in Abebooks for a copy of that book and found several copies for $275-$425.
Post the spiritual when you buy your copy.

Good one Q! I can go to a library and do an interlibrary loan tho.

There are some similar titles but I'm afraid they are different songs,

My suggestion may be a bum steer.

Hey, I found a gospel broom!

http://www.negrospirituals.com/news-song/ain_t_going_to_tarry_here.htm

Sweep it clean
Ain't going to tarry here

I sweep my house with the gospel room (??broom)
Ain't going to tarry here

etc.

AIN'T GOING TO TARRY HERE
(Negro Spiritual)

Sweep it clean
Ain't going to tarry here

I sweep my house with the gospel broom
Ain't going to tarry here

Sweep it clean
Ain't going to tarry here

Gong to open my mouth to the Lord
Ain't going to tarry here

O-o-o Lordy,
Ain't going to tarry here

'Cause he's digging down in the grave
Ain't going to tarry here

The big bell's tolling in Galilee
Ain't going to tarry here

O-o-o Lordy
Ain't going to tarry here
