Notes: With vocal leadership, the accompaniment need not double the melody line of the refrain. The strong pulse of the accompaniment allows for a natural syncopation in the melody line. The timing of the accompaniment with the spoken verses is approximate. Instrumentalists and readers should work this out, adjusting as necessary.
