As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way!

Thanks for the information Smith. It does sound like a Negro spiritual.

Amen.
Favorite song I have heard on pandora so far definitely!
I could be wrong, it won't be the first time. I seem to remember this old song being a slave spiritual song in the mid 1800s. Her simple, straightforw a r d , bluegrass style certainly does the song justice. It is a thing of beauty with the a cappella group behind her. This Song is phenomenal!
