Note: Alan asks Charles where he learned "The Lord Called Adam." Charles seems to think he's asking where the story comes from, and says the story is from the bible. He then sings a fragment of "Old Time Religion." After a brief discussion of John Henry, Barnett sings a verse of the song.
About the session: Minstrel songs and religious material sung by Charles Barnett, accompanying himself on a metal object, perhaps a tub or a bucket. Lomax's note on tape box: "Charles Barnett, 84. Learned all his songs in Lancaster County."
