Always Keep Hope

Under the cover of night
Not alot of food
Depending on Quakers
Emancipation
Runaways becoming free
Going to free states
Running quickly
Over hill and though woods
Under the light of the moon
No overseer
Danger Growing

Rivers carrying runaways to freedom
Always running
Illness slows runaways
Little slave catchers on their trail
Run always
On the run again
Always keep hope
Do not look back
