American Ballads and Folk Songs
NOW OUR MEETING'S OVER "One of the songs used to close a camp meeting."
Now, fathers, now our meeting's over, fathers, we must part, And if on earth we meet no more, I love you in my heart. Then we'll land on that shore, then we'll land on that shore. Then we'll land on that shore and we'll shout forever more!
To continue, substitute "mothers," brothers," etc., for "fathers."
* Sent in by Sam P. Bayard of Pennsylvania, one of the youngest and most successful collectors of our indigenous folk songs.
[571]
