Subject: Lyr Add: WHEN MY BLOOD RUNS CHILLER AND COLD
From: Dicho (Frank Staplin)

WHEN MY BLOOD RUNS CHILLER AND COLD

Cho.
Oh, do, Lord, do, Lord, do remember me,
Do Lord, do, Lord, do remember me,
Oh, do, Lord, do, Lord, do remember me,
Oh, do, Lord, remember me.

When my blood runs chiller and cold, do remember me,
Oh, when my blood runs chiller and cold, do remember me,
Oh, when my blood runs chiller and cold, do remember me,
Oh, do, Lord, remember me.
Cho.
I've got a home in Beulah Land, outshine the sun,
Outshine the sun, outshine the sun,
Oh, I've got a home in Beulah Land, outshine the sun,
'Way beyond the sky.
Cho.
Oh, the shoes that my God give me, outshine the sun, etc.
Cho.
Oh, the robe that my God give me, outshine the sun, etc.
Cho.
If you don't wear no crosses, you can't wear no crown, (3 times)
'Way beyond the sky.
Cho.
Oh, the crown that my God give me outshine the sun,
Outshine the sun, outshine the sun,
Oh, the crown that my God give me outshine the sun,
'Way beyond the sky.
Cho.

Rev. J. R. Gipson and wife, Merryville, LA. John and Ruby Lomax 1939 Southern States Recording Trip. Two songs combined? Only the 1st verse and chorus seem to go with the title.

I remember singing this song in the late 50's - early 60's - but without the first verse. The rest is familiar.

Mario, that is my read also. There are two songs here, one related to Beulah Land of faint memory. Don't remember who made it popular for a while.

When my Blood Runs Chilly and Col'

Oh, when my blood runs chilly an' col',
I'se got to go, I'se got to go, I'se got to go;
Oh, when my blood runs chilly an' col',
I'se got to go, Way beyond de moon.

Cho.
Do, Lord, do, Lord, do remember me,
Oh, do, Lord, do, Lord, do remember me (twice)
Oh, do, Lord, remember me.

Ef you cain't bear no crosses, you cain't wear no crown, 3 times)
Way beyond the moon.

I'se got a mother* in de Beulah land, she's callin' me,
She's callin' me, she's callin' me,
I'se got a mother in de Beulah land, she's callin' me,
Way beyond de sun.

*Repeated for father, brother, sister, etc.

**De harder yo' crosses, de brighter yo' crown, (3 times)
Way beyond de moon.
**Or, Right under your cross, there lies your crown.

Subject: Lyr Add: LORD, REMEMBER ME
From: Giac
Date: 18 Nov 01 - 07:06 PM

Here's a version I've had for so long, without attribution, that I no longer remember from where it came:

LORD, REMEMBER ME !

O do Lord, remember me !
O do, Lord, remember me !
O, do remember me, until de year roll round !
Do, Lord, remember me !

If you want to die like Jesus died,
Lay in de grave,
You would fold your arms and close your eyes
And die wid a free good will.

For Death is a simple ting,
And he go from door to door
And he knock down some, and he cripple up some,
And he leave some here to pray.

O do, Lord, remember me!
O do, Lord, remember me!
My old fader 's gone till de year roll round;
Do, Lord, remember me!


The version I learned in summer camp in the late 40s, had the chorus as Do Lord, Oh, Do Lord, Oh, do remember me (3x)
Look away, beyond the blue.

Mary

Subject: Lyr Add: JESUS, THOU ART THE SINNER'S FRIEND
From: masato sakurai
Date: 20 Nov 01 - 03:39 AM

"Do, Lord, Remember Me" is also in Grissom, The Negro Sings a New Heaven (1930; Dover, 1969, p. 68; with music)[quoted in Jackson, White and Negro Spirituals, p. 165], and Odum and Johnson, The Negro and His Songs (1925; Negro Universities Press, 1968, p. 92). The version sung by Jimmie Strothers and Joe Lee is in Various Artists, Negro Religious Songs and Services (Rounder CD 1514).

George Pullen Jackson says, "A negro spiritual inspired by this song [Jesus, Thou Art the Sinner's Friend in the Sacred Harp (1844), the Southern Harmony (1835), etc.] is 'Lord, Remember Me'." (Spiritual Folk-Songs of Early America, 1937; Dover, 1964, p. 144). The first stanza with refrain (2x) is:

Jesus, thou art the sinner's friend,
As such I look to thee;
Now in the bowels of thy love,
O Lord, remember me.

O Lord remember me,
O Lord remember me;
Now in the bowels of thy love,
O Lord remember me.

Subject: Lyr Add: LIGHTS IN THE VALLEY
From: Dicho (Frank Staplin)
Date: 05 Dec 01 - 07:49 PM

LIGHTS IN THE VALLEY

I'm waitin' for my Jesus, He's comin' after me, (3 times)
Look 'way behind the blue.

Cho.
Lights in the valley, outshine the sun, (3 times)
Look 'way behind the blue.

Be ready, mother, He's comin' after you, (3 times)
Look 'way behind the blue.
Cho.
Be ready, father, He's comin' after you, (3 times)
Look 'way behind the blue.
Cho.
Be ready, sinner, He's comin' after you, (3 times)
Look way behind the blue.

J. E. Mainer's Mountaineers, recorded August 1935 for RCA.
Similar lines (outshine the sun and Way behind-beyond the Blue-moon-sun-sky) appear in several gospel tunes as well as in the spiritual. The version here is by a white group, but black groups have done similar versions to the same tune.

Lyr. Add: GOIN' TO OUTSHINE DE SUN

Well, my mother's goin' to heaven,
She's goin' to outshine the sun, O lord.
Well, my mother's goin' to heaven,
She's goin' to outshine the sun,
Yes, my mother's goin' to heaven to outshine the sun,
An' it's 'way beyon' the moon.

You got a home in the promise lan',
Goin' to outshine the sun, O Lord,
An' it's 'way beyon' the moon.

The crown that my Jesus gave me,
Goin' to outshine the sun, my Lord,
An' it's 'way beyond the moon.

Goin' to put on my crown in glory,
An' outshine the sun, O Lord,
'Way beyond the moon.

H. W. Odum and G. B. Johnson, 1925 (1976) The Negro and His Songs, p. 110, no music.
