BEAR THE NEWS, MARY
G. D. Vowel, who sat on his front porch in Harlan, Kentucky, and sang this spiritual into our microphone, heard it over forty years ago in Knoxville, Tennessee, at a revival meeting.
Bear the news, Mary, Bear the news, Mary, Bear the news, Mary, Pm on my way to glory.
If you git there before I do, Pm a-hunting a home to go to, Just tell them all Pm a-coming too, I'm a-hunting a home to go to.
[563]
