According to the Old Weird America blog, this song is "a very popular spiritual found in the repertoire of many Bluesmen and African-American songsters [...] heard a lot in the repertoire of Gospel singers of all kind and entered also the New-Orleans Jazz canon," while the Where Dead Voices Gather blog calls it "an extremely popular song [which] probably originated in the United States during the late 19th century."


There are fairly good grounds for treating this composition as public domain.
