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.
