Notes
-  A Conch song learned in the Bahamas. The singer is the wife of Wilbur Roberts.
-  The term "Conch," while now more widely used to refer to a native of Key West, Florida, originally referred to British settlers of the Bahama Islands who later emigrated to South Florida. The unique accent of the Conchs--a mixture of British and Bahamian
-  The sound quality of this recording is extremely poor. It has been included online because the melody line can still be identified.
