Wade in the Water

the Back Porch Hounds
Traditional, African American Spiritual, New Jubilee Songs (1901)


One of our funnest songs.  We thought Frank was a little "out there" wanting to put his calypso rhythm to this spiritual that Dennis happened to know.  Dale laughed when Frank asked him to play it on the banjo... in the key of Dm in open G tuning.  But, it all comes together somehow.
