Gospel Plow

(Background Info)

"Gospel Plow" is a variant of a (probably gospel song) known as "Hold On," which Pete Seeger recorded. [1]

From No Direction Home, by Robert Shelton; pg. 122:

[Gospel Plow is] An old spiritual converted into a modern pop-folk song, done up-tempo in a major key. "Keeping the hand on the plow" was a folk saying from farmland America.
