Note: Queen tells Lomax he learned this song from a 60-odd-year-old white man named Frank Jenkins, "up in Rappahanock Mountain." Whether this is the North Carolina-born fiddler and banjo player Frank Jenkins who recorded commercially in the 1920s is unknown.
About the session: Religious material, minstrel songs, and hillbilly tunes performed by Jim Queen. Lomax was particularly interested in the fact that all the songs Jim knows he says he has learned from whites.
