General Note:
This session features a number of instrumental and vocal configurations and performance styles, including: a female chorus with guitar accompaniment (and occasionally male lead); solo voice; and a male chorus; performing work songs, drinking songs, and more.
General Note:
Prominent antiphonal exchange between lead singer and male chorus (singing in parallel harmony). This song is about how Mr. Lincoln is bound to die by the shot of a gun. The tune resembles "When Johnny Comes Marching Home." The text seems to refer (in a rather light-hearted manner) to Lincoln's assassination.
General Note:
vocal
