Gospel Slot - The Larks - Shadrack

It seems the Larks toured with Percy Mayfield, and this gospel tune, written in the 1930's by white composer Robert MacGimsey, was certainly handed down through to Hit The Road Jack, the 1961  hit Mayfield wrote for Ray Charles.

There have been plenty of versions and in addition two others feature below.
