Underground Railroad - A Railroad Without Rails
By Thurman W. Adams
COPYRIGHT 2003. Thurman W. Adams
A railroad without rails,
passengers, but not in cars,
a one way route - South to North,
guided at night by the stars.
A trip by this transportation
was paid, but not by a ticket bought.
It cost many their blood and lives,
in reaching its end, not to be caught.
No dining car for food.
No sleeping car for a bed.
No cushioned seats to sit and rest.
By a conductor, North, you were led.
This travel was like none other around.
For on the Underground Railroad,
you were freedom bound.
Praise God for freedom found!
