KUMBUYA

HARRIET TUBMAN

One night I dreamed I was in slavery ‘bout eighteen fifty was the time
Sorrow was the on-ly sign nothing around to ease my mind
Out of the night appeared a la-dy leading a distant pil-grim band

First mate she yelled pointing her hand make room aboard for this young woman singing
Come on up hm hm hm I got a lifeline come on up to this train of mine
Come on up hm hm hm I got a lifeline come on up to this train of mine

(A) She said her name was Harriet Tubman and she drove for the und-er ground rail-road
(ALL) Aah aah                            and she drove for the und-er ground rail-road

Hundreds of miles, we traveled onward gathering sales from town to town
Seeking every lost and found setting those free that once were bound
Somehow my heart was growing weaker
I fell by the wayside’s sinking sand. Firmly did this lady stand
She lifted me up and took my hand singing
Come on up hm hm hm I got a lifeline come on up to this train of mine
Come on up hm hm hm I got a lifeline come on up to this train of mine

Who are these children dressed in red
They must be the ones that moses led
Who are these children dress in red
They must be the ones that moses led

Follow          the drinking gourd
Follow          the drinking gourd
LOVE AND JUSTICE
The moon is hidden in the clouds, the fire light is dying
In the dark slum and street, Men, women, children crying
No work today means no pay, and no pay means we’re starving
Mother I’m with child again I feel like I am dying
