View Full Version : Year of Jubilo sung by Southerners?

I’ve read in a couple of different places that “Kingdom Comein‘” or “Year of Jubilo” was also sung by some Southerners. I haven’t yet found a period source to back this though. Does anyone know for a fact?

Dear Madame,
I read somewhere ( will post if I can locate the source!), that the song gained some popularity in the post -war South.
all for the old flag,

Mr. Corbett,

That seems more likely.

My first exposure to this song was from a Tex Avery cartoon. A wolf dressed in a Confederate Military uniform, kind of sloped-backed, hands in his pockets, whistles this song in four cartoons in the 1940's. One of them even has the wolf as a school teacher asking the students to paint him a picture of a "Confedrat Flag!"

One kind of wonders what type of "crack" cartoon makers smoked back then.
