Description
From "All God's Chillun Got Wings" to "Dixie," and from "De Camptown Races" to "Clementine," this anthology collects the lyrics to 80 American folk songs, flanked by short texts on the composition and history of the songs. Some of these—particularly the African-American spirituals, chanteys, and cowboy songs—are beautiful paens to American ways of living. Here too are works reflecting discontent or subversive attitudes, including minstrel songs, Civil War ballads, and bawdy tunes. Taken together, these lyrics paint a portrait of 19th-century America, showing it to be a land of great diversity and stark contrasts.
