Blackface song by Will S. Hays uses the same tune:
"Angels, Meet Me at the Cross Roads"

Come down, Gabriel, blow your horn,
Call me home in de early morn,
I seed the chariot down de way,
Come and haul me home to stay.
(Five verses and chorus)

Pub. J. L. Peters, NY, 1875. Sheet music in the Levy Collection.
