When the good people of Maycomb sang, it was often about the Lord. Here is a collection of hymns that Scout and Jem would have been forced to sing in church, either their own or Calpurnia's.

"Sweetly Sings the Donkey"

It was one of Scout's favorites, and children are still singing it at schools today. Get out your recorders for a rousing good time. Hee haw!
