"Old Folks at Home." Published by The Columbian Conservatory of Music. "This folk-song describes the longing for home, a sentiment which is inherent in every human breast. The person who is supposed to be singing the song has been carried to the North, away from the bonds of slavery, and while happy to be released from his old surroundings, still has a yearning for the old folks at home."
