Boston: On 8/27/1918, Two sailors are reported as the first US Spanish flu deaths (ie. originating in China). Eventually 22,000,000 world-wide died, including 500,000 US.

        In nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, men an' women sure was dyin',
        From de disease what de doctors called de flu.
        People was dyin' ev'ywhere; death was creepin' th'ough de air,
        For de groans of de sick sure was sad.

                "Influenza"

From L of C - The John and Ruby Lomax 1939 Southern States Recording Trip. Tune is basically "Jesus Christ" ("Jesse James") and may be hearable by using the link, Real Audio File. Sung by Ace Johnson, Clemens state farm, Brazoria, Texas. "Learned it off a holiness boy in Amarillo, Texas."
