Po’ Lazarus

February 23, 2013

Po’ Lazarus is an old chain gang song that was recently resurrected by the Coen Brother’s movie O’ Brother Where Art Thou? Gotta love it. I’m working on a script that has a work song and I’ve been immersing myself in these old negro work songs.  What an incredible musical form.

Here is the song as it appears in the movie.

Here is the song performed by the Fairfilled Four.
