Lyr. Add: IN SOME LONESOME GRAVEYARD

Ummh, ummh, I hear' a mighty moanin'
Ummh, ummh, I hear' a mighty moanin'
Ummh, ummh, I hear' a mighty moanin'
In some lonesome graveyard.

Mother, Mother, don't let your daughter condemn you
Mother, mother, don't let your daughter condemn you
Mother, mother, don't let your daughter condemn you
In some lonesome graveyard.

Ummh, ummh, I hear' a mighty moanin' (3x)
In some lonesome graveyard.

Father, father, don't let your son condemn you (3x)
In some lonesome graveyard.
Refrain

Preacher, preacher, don't let your members condemn you (3x)
Etc.

Collected in South Carolina by Lydia Parrish.
1992, "Slave Songs of the Georgia Sea Islands," pp. 193-195, with musical score.

The "lonesome graveyard" has been combined in several spiritual or religious songs. Not a spiritual in the normal sense, but sung in the church or in a gathering.
