Thread Name: Chinook Jargon Songs
Subject: RE: Chinook Jargon Songs
I just posted the first verse of "Are You Washed in the Blood" in Chinook Jargon (this is the pidgin, not the creole) in my online hymnal:

mayka wash kopa djisEs pilpil
English: Elisha Hoffman, 1878
Chinook Jargon: anonymous, n.d.

mayka wash ... mayka wash ...
mayka wash kopa djisEs pilpil
mamuk (h)elo masachi
kopa mayka tEmtEm
mayka wash kopa djisEs pilpil
