Tim Eriksen sings Hicks' Farewell

Tim Eriksen sings North Carolina preacher Berryman Hicks' deathbed song (he got better) on Mt. Pollux in Amherst Massachusetts. The text appears in a number of shape note tunebooks with several different melodies. This one, form the Southern Harmony, was popularized (to the extent that anyone's heard it) by Doc Watson, who sang it accompanied by Gaither Carlton on fiddle.
