Minnie Gracie Gadson, "De Blood Done Sign Muh Name" (on USSeaIsland03)
NOTES [88 words]: In Gadson's version, for each verse, the differentiating text, such as "Jesus told me, Jesus told me," is followed by "the blood done signed my name"; that is all repeated three times and followed by "Thank God, the blood done signed my name." I would split this from Roud's #11678 which has the form "x, the blood done signed your name"(x3) "the blood done signed your name" where x varies and takes values such as "ain't you glad, ain't you glad" (see Leadbelly and Dock Reed-Vera Hall: "The Blood Done Signed My Name" (I)). - BS
