Jim Dixon Lyr Req: No More Auction Block (15) RE: Lyr Req: No More Auction Block 27 Jun 20


Words to MANY THOUSAND GONE, along with musical notation in 4-part harmony, can be found in The Story of the Jubilee Singers: With Their Songs by J. B. T. Marsh (Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1881), page 146.

The lyrics are the same as those posted by Joe Offer above, except that the last 2 verses--"No more children stole" and "No more slavery chains"--are omitted.

The same lyrics are also quoted in an article about the Jubilee Singers and Hampton Singers, called "Negro Folk Songs," in Dwight's Journal of Music, Vol. 32, No. 26 (Boston: Apr. 5, 1873), page 412.
