Christmas Is A Coming (Chicken Crows at Midnight) by Leadbelly

Christmas Rocks at The Lost Soul of Rock and Roll. The song of the day for December 28, 2012 is 'Christmas is A-Comin (Chicken Crows at Midnight)' by Leadbelly. This song was recorded in the 1940s and is featured on the album Leadbelly Sings For Children.

I just discovered this song today and it is wonderful. Leadbelly is a blues legend and I'm going to see if I can purchase the Leadbelly album from Smithsonian Folkways. If you don't know Leadbelly then shame on you! Take a listen to the song below and enjoy.
