I’ll Be Rested When the Roll Is Called

I’ll be rested when the roll is called.
I’ll be rested when the roll is called.
I’ll be rested on my way to heaven,
I’ll be rested when the roll is called.

See my mother…

I’ll be laughing…

I’ll be dancing…

I’ll be playing…

Instruments:

It is played on mandolin and fretless bass.

I first heard this tune done this way while combing through the folk song archives at UNC-Chapel Hill in North Carolina. It was attributed simply to “Roosevelt Sykes and brother”.
