Down by the Riverside

Sheet music for violin

Alt. Title: Ain't Gonna Study War No More, Gonna Lay Down My Burden
Info: "Down by the Riverside" is a spiritual and its roots date back to before the American Civil War. The song was first recorded by the Fisk University Jubilee Quartet in 1920 (published by Columbia in 1922). and there are at least 14 black gospel recordings before World War II. Because of its pacifistic imagery, "Down by the Riverside" has also been used as an anti-war protest song, especially during the Vietnam War.
