NOTES: The notes to this song in Allen/Ware/Garrison question whether this is of Negro origin but say that it "illustrat[es] the pressure brought to bear upon the wavering." I don't know about you, but if a preacher started picking on *me* that way, I'd walk out of the congregation. So I have to suspect the audience was, in some sense or other, captive. - RBW
