Deliverance to the North

Underway to the Free States
Not belonging in slavery
Dumb they're not
Enslaved no longer
Resourceful
Generous to each other
Re-inslaved if found
Outstanding hiding places
Under the cover of darkness
Never should be underestimated
Downtrodden because of skin color

Railroad it's not
At a different hiding place each day
Intelligent
Lives of freedom is their dream
Returned to south if caught
Obstacles won't stop them
About helping slaves to freedom
Deliverance to the north
