Note: Begins in very free rhythm, like a holler, and accelerates and intensifies: "Look-a-yonder, I can see king Jesus come-a walking down (Lordy), he's got on his traveling (I mean) shoes (Lordy) (repeats) ) // Look-a yonder (repeats) I can see my mother come walking down … " (etc.) Very dramatic performance
