I'm Free!

Under the tree hiding from catchers No one in sight to catch me
Digging a shelter to hide in
Everyone is asleep, a good time to run
Running form the catchers and they're catching up
Going as fast as I can
Running still, my feet are getting tired
Out of sight from slave catchers
Unless I run I will be caught
No river in sight
Dim light behind me

River up ahead, I see a boat All the oars are in the boat
I see the conductors ahead
Lights all over, almost free!
Rowing towards the shore, almost there!
On the road hiding in a wagon
Almost to the safe house
Done with the journey- I'm free!
