Gwine Tell-a My Lord, Daniel
DESCRIPTION: "Gwine tell-a my Lord, Daniel, How y'all talk about me, Daniel. I love-a coffee; you love-a tea; You go 'round town and talk about me. Gwine tell-a my Lord, Daniel, How y'all talk about me, Daniel."

Morris, #98, "Gwine Tell-a My Lord, Daniel" (1 short text, 1 tune)
NOTES: Morris regards this as a very-much-worn-down spiritual. This is certainly possible, but I don't think we can even call it a religious song based on the tiny amount of material remaining. - RBW
