Follow the Drinking Gourd / The Weavers

Follow the Drinking Gourd / The Weavers

Chorus

Follow the drinking gourd,

Follow the drinking gourd,

For the old man is a-waiting for to carry you to freedom,

Follow the drinking gourd.

Verse 1

When the sun comes back and the first quail calls,

Follow the drinking gourd.

The old man is a waiting for to carry you to freedom,

Follow the drinking gourd.

Chorus

Verse 2

Now the river bank makes a mighty good road,

The dead trees will show you the way.

Left foot, peg foot, traveling on,

Follow the drinking gourd.

Chorus

Verse 3

Now the river ends between two hills,

Follow the drinking gourd.

There’s another river on the other side,

Follow the drinking gourd.

Chorus

Naked Raygun / Home of the Brave

Starin’ off in… to the night

“I’m off to a place where life’s right”

Knocks out the dirt on the ground
Wonders about his life… and he cussed
Stu wonders what his parents had found

Broken dreams and promises
These are the things they have and hold
A country that even…
Persecuted the Weavers
Did you ever see the Weavers?
