American Ballads and Folk Songs
Chorus:
Ring-a dat big bell, Dat bigges5 big one! Tell-a me whut he done done Way down in hell!
Laz'us lay outside,
^ Ring-a dat big bell} Dogs lick his so* side,
Ring-a dat big bell; But when he bof die,
Ring-a dat big bell, Xaz'us he even up-high.
Rich man I hears folks tell,
Ring-a dat big bell, Dropped into lownes' hell,
Ring-a dat big bell 3 Laz'us lay close an' fast,
Ring-a dat big bell, In Ab'ham's breas5 at last.
SET DOWN, SERVANT*
