lyrics

Well I left my man on the other side
Harriet Tubman's gonna carry me home
On the underground railroad I will ride
Harriet Tubman's gonna carry me home
At night I ride on that Northern Star
Harriet Tubman's gonna carry me home
If I gotta go to heaven then I'll go that far
Harriet Tubman's gonna carry me home

They say that old Dred Scott
Will put his hooks on me
But they ain'y made the shackles
That'll keep me from wrestlin' free

Well I left my family on the other side
Harriet Tubman's gonna carry me home
They ain't got their freedom but they got their pride
Harriet Tubman's gonna carry me home
And there's more of them as there's more of me
Ain't nothing ever gonna stop us wwrestlin' free

If Joshua need a soldier let him come to me
As my life is but a shackle to this block of stone
When Jericho is falling let them call on me
Though I never had a past I got a will to be

They say that Frederick Douglass
Is an exception to their rules
Well I just read my Bible
And if they're right they're fools

Well I left my man on the other side
On the underground railroad I will ride
At night I ride on a Northern Star
If I gotta go to heaven then I'll go that far
If I gotta go to heaven then I'll go that far
If I gotta go to heaven then I'll go that far
Harriet Tubman's gonna carry me home
Harriet Tubman's gonna carry me home
Harriet Tubman's gonna carry me home

Crossing Byrds/Buffalo Springfield electric guitars and harmonies with a Sex Pistols/Ramones rhythm section was their idea and their legacy. Their signature songs Looking For Lewis And Clark and I Had A Dream have never left the airwaves. ... more
