lyrics

On a southbound Greyhound out of Tennessee
With a half-packed duffle bag upon the seat
Through Huntsville County in a dark so deep it’s hard to see
On a southbound Greyhound out of Tennessee

Well, the highway’s always brought us better days
Hurdling above the reddened clay
Freedom now has come to cost the same price as the rain
So let it roll, let it roll on down again.

And meet me down in Birmingham Springs
Where the creek singers they gather up to sing
Bring a hammer and a freedom bell and listen closely when it rings
When it echoes out through Birmingham Springs.

Well, the currents now they calm a traveling man
And bring him to his knees from where he stands
They murmur like the Lord’s Prayer, lean in closely if you can
The currents now they calm a traveling man

And we’ll throw our burdens down now where we lay
When the apparitions ‘round us loudly say
“Come on friends, your faith it costs the same price as the rain,
So let it roll, let it roll on down again.”

And meet me down in Birmingham Springs
Where the creek singers they gather up to sing
Bring a hammer and a freedom bell and listen closely when it rings
When it echoes out through Birmingham Springs.

And meet me down in Birmingham Springs
Where the creek singers they gather up to sing
Bring a hammer and a freedom bell and listen closely when it rings
When it echoes out through Birmingham Springs.
