Notes
-  Mrs. Elizabeth Prácher learned this song from her father in Czechoslovakia.
-  Masaryktown, named for Thomas G. Masaryk, the first president (1918-1935) of the Czechoslovak Republic, is a community near Tampa settled by Czech farmers in 1924.
-  The sound quality of this recording is extremely poor. It has been included online because the melody line can still be identified.
-  Performance Note: "Ked sa Slovak zo svey vlasty odberal" (vocals) performed by Elizabeth Prácher at Masaryktown, Florida, on August 28, 1939.
