Believed to be written after the Civil War, this American folk song is often credited as a spiritual based on the idea that the words are encoded escape instructions and a map for fleeing slaves on their way north. The supportive and interesting piano accompaniment can be enhanced with ad lib. percussion while the melody, harmony, text, and rhythm combine to create an unforgettable performance.
