American Ballads and Folk Songs
O graveyard,
0 graveyard,
I'm walkin' through de graveyard j Lay dis body down.
1 know moonlight, I know starlight,
I'm walkin' t'rough de starlight j Lay dis body down.
I lay in de grave An* stretch out my arms, I'm layin' in de graveyard j Lay dis body down.
A Negro sermon in song, with the congregation as chorus.
Tell-a me who dat had a rod?
Mone, member, mone! Hit was Moses, chil' of God.
Mone, member, mone! Who dat hit dat mighty rock?
Mone, member, mone! Moses strike one, heaven clock.
Mone, member, mone! Struck it one an' struck it two.
Mone, member, mone! Watch out, Moses, what you do!
Mone, member, mone!
