Editor Notes:

Rev. Savage dedicates the performance to Rev. Dr. Lowell [?], pastor of the church. Followed by discussion between Lomax and Rev. Savage about song’s context and meaning. Rev. Savage says he learned the song from his grandmother, who sang it in slavery-times. (Lomax erroneously identifies Savage as Henry Joiner in his notebook.)
