Ancora una canzone dedicata alla Mosè Nera, alla regina dell’“Underground Railroad”, alla ”General” Tubman
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"

Singing come on up, I got a lifeline
Come on up to this train of mine
Singing come on up, I got a lifeline
Come on up to this train of mine

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

Singing come on up, I got a lifeline
Come on up to this train of mine
Singing come on up, I got a lifeline
Come on up to this train of mine

She said her name was Harriet Tubman
and she drove for the underground railroad.
