Lyrics

  • RIDE ON, RIDE ON RED, RIDE ON
  • WELL I LEFT MY HOME IN VICKSBURG
  • AND STARTED TRAVELING NORTH,
  • MADE IT TO NEW ORLEANS AS THE BUS WAS TAKING OFF
  • THE CITIZENS COMMITTEE WAS GIVING AWAY THE FARE
  • SAYING, ‘IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE SOUTH, BOY,
  • JUST RIDE ON OUTTA HERE’
  • RIDE ON, RIDE ON RED, RIDE ON
  • GONNA RIDE OFF TO MY FREEDOM
  • AND MAKE THOSE NORTHERN STATES MY HOME
  • WE MADE IT TO SHREVEPORT, WHERE WE WERE SUPPOSED TO EAT
  • I GOT MYSELF A SANDWICH AND ATE IT ON THE STREET.
  • RIDE ON, LOUISIANA RED, RIDE ON
  • GONNA RIDE ON TO YOUR FREEDOM
  • AND MAKE THOSE NORTHERN STATES YOUR HOME
  • WE MADE IT INTO LITTLE ROCK, WE MADE ANOTHER STATE
  • TOOK THE WHOLE OF THE U.S. ARMY
  • TO MAKE ONE SCHOOL INTEGRATE
  • RIDE ON, RIDE ON RED, RIDE ON
  • GONNA RIDE ON TO YOUR FREEDOM
  • AND MAKE THOSE NORTHERN STATES YOUR HOME
  • WELL I LIVE HERE IN NEW YORK AND I AM DOING FINE,
  • HAVE MYSELF A BALL ABOVE THE MASON-DIXIE LINE
  • RIDE ON, RIDE ON RED, RIDE ON
  • GONNA RIDE OFF TO MY FREEDOM
  • AND MAKE THOSE NORTHERN STATES MY HOME
