NewIssue
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1319 | duration: 4:40 | price: $2.05
accompaniment: a cappella, drum


This action-packed arrangement of the popular folk song will be a concert favorite. A middle section labeled Allegro energico is loaded with rhythmic interest. After building to a dramatic climax, we are treated to an equally dramatic fade-out ending. Audiences will love this.

Follow the drinking gourd,
follow the drinking gourd
For the old man is a-waitin’
to carry you to freedom. Follow the drinking gourd.

When the sun comes back
and the first quail calls
follow the drinking gourd.
For the old man is a-waitin’ for
to carry you to freedom
if you follow the drinking gourd.

Now the river bank makes
a mighty good road.
The dead trees will show you the way.
Left foot, peg foot, travelin’ on
Follow the drinking gourd.

Now the river ends
between two hills.
Follow the drinking gourd.
Oh there’s another river on the other side,
oh you must follow the drinking gourd.

Where the great big river
meets the little river,
Follow the drinking gourd.
For the old man is a-waitin’ for to carry you to freedom
if you follow the drinking gourd.
