Follow The Drinking Gourd

Paul Campbell

CHORUS

Follow the Drinking Gourd,
Follow the Drinking Gourd,
For the old man is a-waiting for
to carry you to freedom if you
Follow the Drinking Gourd.
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.
CHORUS
Now 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.
CHORUS
Now the river ends between two hills,
Follow the Drinking Gourd.
There's another river on the other side,
Follow the Drinking Gourd.
CHORUS
When the great big river meets the little
river, Follow the Drinking Gourd.
For the old man is a-waiting for to carry you
to freedom if you Follow the Drinking Gourd.
