Ethel Waters in Chester County - early 20th Century

from His Eye Is On the Sparrow, page 60:

Ching was so drunk she couldn't leave the house. But when they brought the coffin out into the dusty, littered alley Ching was sitting at her window, watching it all. And she was singing in her sweet, low voice "Flee as a Bird," a song she and Mom had always loved.
