Harriet Tubman (Walter Robinson) One night I dreamed I was in slavery 'Bout 1850 was the time Sorrow was the only sign Nothing around to ease my mind. Out of the night appeared a lady Leading a distant Pilgrim band "First mate" she yelled, pointing her hand. "Make room aboard for this young woman" cho: Singing come on up, I got a lifeline Come on up to this train of mine (2 x) She said her name was Harriet Tubman And she drove for the underground railroad Hundreds of miles we traveled onward Gathering slaves from town to town Seeking every lost and found Setting those free that once were bound Somehow my heart was growing weaker I fell by the wayside's sinking sand Firmly did this lady stand She lifted me up and took my hand Who are these children dressed in red They must be the ones that Moses led Chorus She said her name was Harriet Tubman and she drove for the underground railroad.
