Mary had a baby

As I was doing some research for an upcoming class I came across this old negro spiritual and being the season that we are in thought it timely to post..

MARY HAD A BABY

——————————————————————————–

Mary had a baby
Yes Lord
Mary had a baby
Yes Lord
The people keep-a coming and the train done gone

What did she name him
Yes Lord
What did she
The people keep-a coming and the train done gone

She name him King Jesus
Yes Lord
Name him King Jesus
Yes my Lord
Name him King Jesus
Yes Lord
The people keep-a coming and the train done gone

She name him Mighty Couns’lor
Yes Lord
Name him Mighty Couns’lor
Yes my Lord
Name him Mighty Couns’lor
Yes Lord
The people keep-a coming and the train done gone

Oh, where was he born?
Yes Lord
Where was he born
Yes my Lord
Where was he born
The people keep-a coming and the train done gone

Oh born in a manger
Yes Lord
Born in a manger
Yes my Lord
Born in a manger
The people keep-a coming and the train done gone
