about

I woke up singing "All I Need To Know" a couple of months ago. I don't remember hearing it before and couldn't find it anywhere online or in print. A couple of days later, I came across a book of "America Negro Spirituals." Taking this as a sign, I started recording my arrangements of a selection of these songs.

Track Name: All I Need To Know
If I were hungry
With no bread or meat
If I were naked
With no shoes on my feet
Yes, God knows
I’ll never doubt Him
Yes He knows
And He sees
Oh you know the lord
The lord is my shepherd
And that’s all I need to know
The lord is my shepherd and that’s all I need to know
The lord is my shepherd and that’s all I need to know
On the land, or the sea
Oh He’s watchin’ over me
Oh you know the lord
The lord is my shepherd
And that’s all I need to know


If I were blind,
Couldn’t find my way home
Said if I was lost,
And found myself all alone
Oh, God knows
I’ll never doubt Him
Yes He knows
He knows and He sees
Oh you know the lord
The lord is my shepherd
And that’s all I need to know
The lord is my shepherd and that’s all I need to know
The lord is my shepherd and that’s all I need to know
In the air, the ocean, or on dry land
He’s got the whole world in his hands
Oh you know the lord
The lord is my shepherd
And that’s all I need to know
Track Name: Motherless Child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
A long way from home

Sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone
Sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone
Sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone
Up to my heavenly home

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
A long way from home
A long way from home
A long way from home
A long way from home
Track Name: Little David Play on Your Harp
Little David play on your harp
Hallelu, hallelu
Little David play on your harp
Hallelu

Little David play on your harp
Hallelu, hallelu
Little David play on your harp
Hallelu

Little David was a shepherd boy,
He killed Goliath and he shouted for joy.
Little David was a shepherd boy,
He killed Goliath and he shouted for joy.

Little David play on your harp
Hallelu, hallelu
Little David play on your harp
Hallelu

Joshua was the son of Nun
He never quit till his work was done
Joshua was the son of Nun
He never quit till his work was done

Little David play on your harp
Hallelu, hallelu
Little David play on your harp
Hallelu

Track Name: No Hiding Place Down There
There's no hiding place down there,
There's no hiding place down there,
I went to the rock to hide my face,
The rock cried out, "No hiding place"

The rock cried, "I'm burning, too"
Oh, the rock cried, "I'm burning, too"
I wanna go to heaven, just as bad as you do
There's no hiding place down there

The sinner man gambled and fell
The sinner man he gambled and he fell
He wanted to go to heaven, but he had to go to hell
There's no hiding place down there

There's no hiding place down there,
There's no hiding place down there,
I went to the rock to hide my face,
The rock cried out, "No hiding place"
Track Name: Every Time I Feel The Spirit
Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray
Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray

Up on the mountain the lord spoke
Out of his mouth came fire and smoke
I looked all around me it looked so shine
I asked the lord if all was mine

Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray
Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray
Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray
Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray

The Jordan River is chilly and cold
It may chill the body but it can’t touch your soul
It’s a one way train on a one way track
It goes straight to heaven, and it never looks back

Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray
Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray
Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray
Every time I feel the spirit moving in my heart I will pray
Track Name: You Got A Right
You got a right,
I got a right,
We all got a right to the tree of life.

Yes, you got a right,
I got a right,
We all got a right to the tree of life.

The very time I thought I was lost,
The dungeon shook and the chains fell off
You may hinder me here but you can't hinder me there
Cuz God in heaven's gonna answer my prayer

You got a right,
I got a right,
We all got a right to the tree of life.

Yes, you got a right,
I got a right,
We all got a right to the tree of life.
Track Name: Free At Last
Free at last, free at last
I thank God I'm free at last.
Free at last, free at last
I thank God I'm free at last.

Way down yonder in the graveyard walk
I thank God I'm free at last
Me and Jesus gonna meet and talk
I thank God I'm free at last

On my knees when the light pass by
I thank God I'm free at last
Thought my sould would rise and fly
I thank God I'm free at last

One of these mornings bright and fair
I thank God I'm free at last
I'll meet my Jesus in the middle of the air
I thank God I'm free at last

Free at last, free at last
I thank God I'm free at last.
Free at last, free at last
I thank God I'm free at last.
Track Name: Motherless Child (Reprise)
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
A long way from my home
