This song comes from Willie Turner, an inmate at Camp Livingston in Alabama who
was recorded by collector Harold Courlander in 1950. It was sung on the county road
gang. Courlander, who also recorded Vera Hall on that trip, explains that “Among the
gnawing fears and anxieties of the long term prisoners is the thought that when they
return home they may find that their women are no longer waiting.”23 When Bruce
and Margaret sing, the entire room resonates.
