Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
When the Sun comes back
And the first quail calls
Follow the drinking gourd,
For the old man is a-waiting for to carry you to freedom
If you follow the drinking gourd
Verse 2
The riverbank makes a very good road.
The dead trees will show you the way.
Left foot, peg foot, traveling on,
Follow the drinking gourd.
Verse 3
The river ends between two hills
Follow the drinking gourd.
There's another river on the other side
Follow the drinking gourd.
Verse 4
When the great big river meets the little river
Follow the drinking gourd.
For the old man is a-waiting for to carry to freedom
If you follow the drinking gourd.
