Rolfyboy6 Lyr Req: Many Thousands Gone (6) RE: Lyr Req: Many Thousands Gone 26 Jan 02


Yup, although there are some versions which re-arrange and combine the verses into a tighter four line format.

No more auction block for me
No more pint of salt for me
No more peck of corn for me
Many Thousand gone

This is the way I learned it down home as a kid from a church sister. Later I learned the No More Auction Block For Me version posted above. I think the No More Auction Block must be the older one, it's got the old congregational 'line-out' form. Our scolars here will know the collected sources.
