Note: Jones: 'This is a shout that I learned from my people in churches back in Fitzgerald when I was a little girl. It means that, when you have on your traveling shoes, you're ready to travel on with the Lord, you are ready to travel on a religious world… 'Plumb The Line' (get straight) means a person who is standing in the word of God. It's a shout, too. It's a wonderful song.'
