Ferry Me (All The Way To Freedom)

from by Damond Moodie

lyrics

I’ve been sold down the river
I’ve been told a pack of lies
I’m too old to give up this fight
And I’m bold enough to look you in the eye

Desperate in the darkness
Won’t you ferry me away

Underground road, runs through Ohio
Underground code speaks the truth
I can’t hold my babies' hands, no mo
Carry this load; to slip the noose

Fist full of bread warms my belly
Won’t you ferry me away

Ferry me, ferry me
All the way to freedom

Hide in the shadows to catch this train
Northern star whispers my real name
Upon arrival, let go of the shame
A tunnel to shelter from confederate rain

Ferry me, ferry me
All the way to freedom

All the way to freedom X 4
