Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
When I get over the river
And reach old Jordan's shore, I want to see my loved ones
That all have gone before; And there amid that gathering
For every one to see Moses will be standing
And waiting there for me.
UNCLE TOM
Uncle Tom is singing
And singing soft and low, His hair is almost silvered
And his steps are very slow; And still he keeps on singing
As he treads among the gorse, One more ribber, one more ribber
One more ribber to cross.
The day is bright and cheerful
The sky shows not a cloud, And Uncle Tom keeps singing
In the vineyard with the crowd; And still he keeps on singing
With all his vocal force, One more ribber, one more ribber
One more ribber to cross.
