Samuel D. Jackson’s Music Book

This small notebook contains songs and musical notations collected by Samuel D. Jackson (1809-bef. 1847) in 1824, probably in Alabama. Most of the songs are religious in nature.

This book my name may ever contain
When I am dead and in my grave.
When gready worms my body eat
Then you may read my name complete
