American Ballads and Folk Songs
Dark cloud risin' in de eas', Dark cloud risin' in de eas', Way to Zion, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, Look like it gonna be a storm.
When I look way 'cross dat lonesome stream, When I look way 'cross dat lonesome stream, Way to Zion, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, When I look way 'cross dat lonesome stream-
WOE BE UNTO YOU*
Woe be unto you,
Woe be unto you,
You may throw yo' rocks an' hide yo' hands,
But it's woe be unto you.
Well, it's woe be unto you,
Well, it's woe be unto you,
You may dip yo' snuff an' hide yo' box,
But it's woe be unto you.
*Ruthie May Bevil, summer student in Prairie View Normal School for Negroes, gave us this spiritual.
