Note: Bessie Jones: "Rock so low" means that they get down on their knees and their knees knocked together. They got so low to Jesus. They used to shout this up around Dawson and Columbia with my mother and her sister. They shouted it on those watch nights when they stayed up together, like "Oh, Day." [a Christmas watch night song].
