THE LORD WILLIN' AND THE CRICK DON'T RISE.

Submitter comment: THIS EXPRESSION IS SAID BY MR. SMITH WHO LIVES BETWEEN NOTTASULGA
AND LOCKAPOGO, ALABAMA. THE INFORMANT SAID THAT MR. SMITH WAS
LEARY OF COMMITTING HIMSELF TO SOMETHING THAT HE FELT WAS IN THE
POWER OF THE LORD TO KEEP HIM FROM ACCOMPOLISHING, AND THAT HE
FELT BY SAYING THIS THAT HE WASN'T TEMPING FATE. THE INFORMANT
SAID THAT HE HAD HEARD MR. SMITH SAY THIS MANY TIMES DURING THE
PAST FIFTEEN YEARS.
