Just an old Folk Song......

Folks, here is an old folk song that many singers have sung over the years....
An American folk song often categorized as children's music. It is a derivation of a Negro spiritual known as "When the Chariot Comes".
See if you can guess what the modern day title of this song is.....
It is all in Potawatomi.....
Have fun with this song....
Nin se Neaseno.
