Follow The Drinking Gourd


Hyde Park Thursday Poets Rally Week 74 (October 4 -October 10)

Follow the drinking gourd,
When the rooster crows and darkness expels,
Follow the drinking gourd,
The chairman is ready to take you to freedom.
The shoulder of the highway makes a mighty resting spot,
The common senses will blaze the trial,
Peg foot, hind feet, marching on,
Follow the drinking gourd.
Now the roadway turns divergent,
There's turnpikes on the way north bound,
The arrow signs reveal the different bound,
Follow the drinking gourd.
