During those years [Chicago late 30s] there was also a blues singer by the name of Dr Clayton out of Vicksburg, Mississippi. He was very popular and made a lot of records. Danny Boy was his favourite and he could really sing it, but he was more of a blues singer - Oh, Didn't He Ramble: The Life Story of Lee Collins as told to Mary Collins

Parchman Farm Prison Songs Vol. 1 - Early in the Mornin'
« on: April 29, 2016, 12:43:14 PM »
Hi, Guys!

I got both Vol. of the Prison Songs and the Lyrics are in the Booklet, well most of them.
These are the Lyrics from "Early in the Mornin'" i wrote them off from the booklet but it miss the last 30 or 40 secs.
English is not my native language and it makes me kinda nuts that i don't understand what the sing in the last 30secs.
I'm pretty sure it's something that they sing before in the song, maybe the chorus?
