In De Morning by the Bright Light.

I’m gwine away by the light of the moon,
Want all the children for to follow me,
I hope I’ll meet you darkies 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!

Go get a match and light that lamp,
Want all the children for to follow me;
And show me the way to the Baptist camp,
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah!
We’ll have beefsteak and sparerib stew,
Want all the children for to follow me;
And nice boiled onions dipped in dew,
Halle, halle, halles hallelujah!

I’ll 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 don’t forget to curl your hair,
Halle, halle; halle, hallelujah!
