4: This hymn was said to be a favorite of Harriet Tubman, the “Moses of her people”. An escaped slave herself, Tubman risked her life to conduct hundreds of other slaves to safety and freedom. At one point in time, a $40,000 reward was offered by a group of slave owners for her capture, dead or alive. Tubman loved spirituals, and even wrote her own. As part of the Underground Railroad, she was a Conductor, nurse, spy and scout. When guiding slaves, Tubman used spirituals as signals to hiding slaves to indicate whether it was safe to come out of hiding and continue on the journey. She used one song as a warning song to stay hidden, and another to communicate that it was safe to come out of hiding. The chariot referred to in “Swing Low Sweet Chariot” and other spirituals referred to the carriages and wagons used to transport fleeing slaves in the early 19th century. Later in the century, a faster-moving chariot became available in the form of the railroad train.

5: Swing Low Sweet Chariot Lyrics: Chorus: Swing low, sweet chariot, Comin' for to carry me home! I looked over Jordan and what did I see, Comin' for to carry me home! A band of angels comin' after me, Comin' for to carry me home! Chorus: If you get there before I do, Comin' for to carry me home, Jess tell my friends that I'm acomin' too, Comin' for to carry me home. Chorus: I'm sometimes up and sometimes down, Comin' for to carry me home, But still my soul feels heavenly bound Comin' for to carry me home!

Sometimes it gets tiresome because I am very young and I just want a normal life like the girls I have to watch and take care of , but all the emotions and feelings I have I must hide them because I am obligated to do this or I will get beaten . My mama and my dad is with me, but about my life I love both of Frances and Sarah which are the name of my masters kids they are very special to me but no doubt about it Sarah is the one who I would like more she understands the wrong in slavery don’t get me wrong I love both . I guess I love them being with them so long you kind of feel that way but I just want to be free that’s the good life let’s just hope that I don’t have to get sold because I want to stay with Sarah she needs me her mom left because she knew that the way of life in the south was wrong and I hope one day her way of life and what she believes in will get to other people so they can stop this horrible way of living in the south.
