“Lord, Remember Me”


"Oh, Deat' he is a little man, And he goes from do' to do', He killed some souls and he wounded some...." "Do, Lord, remember me (x2), I cry to the Lord as the year roll around...." "I want to die like-a Jesus die, And he die with a free good will...."


This should not be confused with "Do Lord, Remember Me," a separate song. - PJS
