African Americans vocals Ethnography Music Narratives Interviews Work songs Office of the Aycock & Lindsey Turpentine Camp Cross City, Florida Dixie County

The singer, a 21-year-old Tennessee-born turpentine worker at Putnam Lumber Company, learned this song while at the Dixie County Prison Camp. He served three months for not paying the lumber company $50 for three months' rent, which he said he accumulated while he was ill. The sound quality of this recording is extremely poor. It has been included online because the melody line can still be identified.
