Note: Bessie Jones talks about the importance of listening to the words of a song. "It's something to think about -- it makes you feel all funny and cool [chilled] and scared, too. You could picture yourself in the song. Luke and John and Moses, they've got to rise with us." Alan Lomax expresses surprise that they are not yet in heaven, but Bessie assures him that this is indeed the case. All the dead are sleeping and all will rise together.
