By'm Bye

In Sandburg, 1927, The American Songbag, a note says it is a fragment of a spiritual heard in Texas in the early 1880s by Charley Thorpe of Santa Fe. (source)

Lyrics

1. By’m bye, By’m bye.
Stars shining, number, number one, number two, number three,
Good Lawd, by’m bye, by’m bye, Good Lawd, by’m bye.

2. By’m bye, By’m bye.
Stars shining, number, number four, number five, number six,
Good Lawd, by’m bye, by’m bye, Good Lawd, by’m bye.
Oh, my! By’m Bye, By’m Bye
Oh, my! By’m Bye.

3. …number seven, number eight, number nine…

Recorder notes: D, E, F#, G, A, D’

 
By'm Bye D
