Little can be found about the Taskiana Four, though they recorded a number of tracks for Victor Orthophonic in 1926 and 1927, including "I Shall Not Be Moved." That number was recorded on 21 July, 1926, with take 2 selected to appear as the A-side of a 78 RPM, whose other B-side was titled "Join That Band" (20183). The group came from Philadelphia and performed in two New York shows, "Miss Calico" and "Africana," before disbanding in 1928. The number "I Shall Not Be Moved" is also known as "We Shall Not Be Moved." A query follows the writer credits because various sources list various writers (Jorgensen lists "Traditional," the online Folk Index lists Akley...).
Elvis sung along on this traditional gospel number with Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis during the Million Dollar Quartet jam session at the Sun Studios in December 1956.

Well Lordy I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's growin' in the meadow (down by the water)
I shall not be moved

I'm on my way to glory land and I shall not be moved
On my way to glory land I will not be moved
I'm like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Well I'm on my way to glory land and I shall not be moved
On my way to glory land I shall not be moved
I'm like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Oh well
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

On this rock of ages, I shall not be moved
On this rock of ages, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Glory, glory, glory Hallelujah, I shall not be moved
Glory Hallelujah, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved
