O, the sun don't never go down -- I shall not be moved -- Sister Mary wore three lengths (Links) of chain -- Lord, when I was a sinner -- Travelin' shoes -- When I can read my title clear -- Dark was the night, and cold the ground -- Am I a soldier of the cross? -- A charge to keep I have -- That ain't all, I got more b'side -- Dark was the night -- Tallest tree in paradise -- Lord, have mercy, if you please -- When the way is dark and dreary -- I heard my old mother call -- When I get home -- Well, I been traveling all through this way
