Formatted Contents Note:
Southeast Africa: At the dawn of day (Loko ku ti ga) The stones are very hard (Maribye ma nonoha ngopfu) Take Nabandji (Thata Nabandji) They will not lend me a child (A ba boleki nwawa)--South Africa: Song of conquest (Ringendjé) Warriors' song.--West Africa: O lo ba.--West Indies: The bamboula (African dance)--America: The angels changed my name. Deep river. Didn't my Lord deliver Daniel? Don't be weary, traveler. Going up. I'm troubled in mind. I was way down a-yonder (Dum-a-lum) Let us cheer the weary traveler. Many thousand gone. My Lord delivered Daniel. Oh, he raise a poor Lazarus. Pilgrim's song. Run, Mary, run. Sometimes I feel like a motherless child. Steal away. Wade in the water.
