NOTES [70 words]: Almost every word of this song, as sung by Simon Crocker for Cox-FolkMusicInANewfoundlandOutport, is found in the song "Crucified" by C. Austin Miles (1868-1946), who also wrote "Dwelling in Beulah Land" and "In the Garden." But Crocker's version is so reorganized and filed down and shortened that I'm frankly tempted to consider them different songs. It took me a LONG time to see the connection between the two. - RBW
