Notes
-  Berry Johnson believes that Joe Mows (good luck items, also known as "Mojos," said to be helpful in winning at gambling games) are not much good unless you pay $75-100 for them. He had a $100 Joe Mow from New Orleans which won him thousands of dollars. He doesn't gamble anymore, though, since he joined the church.
-  Performance Note: "Joe Mows, Witches and Hants" (spoken) performed by Berry Johnson at Office of the Aycock & Lindsey Turpentine Camp, Cross City, Florida, on August 19, 1939.
