Follow the Drinking Gourd

Traditional

Chorus:
Follow the drinking gourd
Follow the drinking gourd
For the old man is waiting
To carry you to freedom
Follow the drinking gourd

When the sun comes back then the first quail calls
For the old man is waitin’ to carry you to freedom
Follow the drinking gourd (chorus)

The river bank will make a mighty good road
The dead trees will show you the way
For the old man is waiting (chorus)

Running for my life
Looking to the sky
Will I find freedom
With the wilderness ahead
And the north star up ahead
There I’ll find my freedom
My freedom

Anywhere you lead me I will follow
