My name – my soul

My life

I just found out how my parents choose my name: Harry Belafonte -Go Down Emanuel Road


“Well I tell you man, if you good/

You better chop dat stone like wood/

Then tomorrow gonna be a big day/

You get another shilling in your pay/

‘Cause from sun to sun you gotta stick/

An’ don’t tell me ’bout you sick/

I want you to do your best/

Tonight you better let them women rest/

So you can get up and go down Emanuel/

Road man and boy/

Got to break that stone/

Go down Emanuel Roadman and boy/

Got to break that stone.”
