Morning by the Bright Light

WORLD MANUFACTURING COMPANY, 122 Nassau Street, New York.[?]

Morning by the bright light.

I’m gwine away by de 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 de brother dat you meet,
Want all de children for to follow me;
Dat I will travel on my feet,
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah!

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

I’ll take my old banjo along—
Want all de children for to follow me;
In case de boys should sing a song,
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah!
For no one has to pay no fare—
Want all de children for to follow me;
So don’t forget to curl your hair,
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah!
