Subject: RE: Open up the window, Noah
An abbreviated version is included in the school songbook, "Making Music Your Own," Book 4, pp. 124-125, with music, adapted from John W. Work, 1940, "American Negro Songs and Spirituals," p. 96, with music. The tune for the version used by Work differs from the tune reproduced by Parrish for the Georgia Sea Islands song.
I have not checked for further versions and tunes.
