Contents:
Kum ba ya
Over my head
Go down Moses
Follow the drinkin' gourd
Take this hammer
Bring me li'l' water, Silvy
Sweet oranges
Blueberries
That' how the cake walk's done
The boll weevil
Lift ev'ry voice and sing
This little light of mine
Swing low, sweet chariot
Take my hand, precious Lord
Miss Mary Mack
Hambone
We shall not be moved
Take the A train
Dog, dog
Freedom's comin'
Happy birthday
Say it loud, I'm black and I'm proud
Get on board, little children.
