Almanac Singers
Language: English



A song from "Underground Railroad" days, as sung these days by the Almanac Singers…

I'm on my way (I'm on my way)
And I won't turn back! (and I won't turn back!)
I'm on my way (I'm on my way)
And I won't turn back! (and I won't turn back!)
I'm on my way, great God!
I'm on my way!

I'm on my way to Freedom land
I'm on my way to Freedom land
I'm on my way to Freedom land
I'm on my way, great God!
I'm on my way!

I asked my brother [sister] to come with me
I asked my brother [sister] to come with me
I asked my brother [sister] to come with me
I'm on my way, great God!
I'm on my way!

I'm on my way (I'm on my way)
And I won't turn back! (and I won't turn back!)
I'm on my way (I'm on my way)
And I won't turn back! (and I won't turn back!)
I'm on my way, great God!
I'm on my way!

If he [she] says no, I'll go alone
If he [she] says no, I'll go alone
If he [she] says no, I'll go alone
I'm on my way, great God!
I'm on my way!

I ask my boss to let me go
I ask my boss to let me go
I ask my boss to let me go
I'm on my way, great God!
I'm on my way!

If he says no, I'll go anyhow
If he says no, I'll go anyhow
If he says no, I'll go anyhow
I'm on my way, great God!
I'm on my way!

I'm on my way (I'm on my way)
And I won't turn back! (and I won't turn back!)
I'm on my way (I'm on my way)
And I won't turn back! (and I won't turn back!)
I'm on my way, great God!
I'm on my way!

I'm on my way to Freedom land
I'm on my way to Freedom land
I'm on my way to Freedom land
I'm on my way, great God!
I'm on my way!
