IN THE MORNING, BY THE BRIGHT LIGHT.
Key of G. I 'm gwine away by the light of the moon,
Want all the children for to follow me; I hope I '11 meet you darkeys soon,
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah! So tell the brothers that you meet,
Want all the children for to follow me; That I will travel on my feet,
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah!
Chorus.—In the morning, morning, by the bright light, Hear Gabriel's trumpet in the morning.
Go get a match and light that lamp,
Want all the children for to follow me; And show me the way to the soldiers' camp,
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah! We '11 have beefsteak and sparerib stew,
Want all the children for to follow me; And nice boiled onions, dipped in dew,
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah !
Chorus.—In the morning, morning, by the bright light, etc.
I '11 take my old banjo along,
Want all the children for to follow me; In case the boys should sing a song;
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah! For no one has to pay no fare,
Want all the children for to follow me; So do n't forget to curl.your hair,
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah!
Chorus.—In the morning, morning, by the bright light, etc.
