Eric Johnson — Trail Of Tears lyrics

Take me from these earth bound chains
I must find it once again
The meaning of equality
We will never hide in shame
But forever guard the flame
Burning for eternity
Hundreds of nights
Oh, my body cries
A trail of tears
Promises sometimes don't keep
Freedom, put to sleep, and now I know
(I lay my body down)
Written with the words you tell
Stories, a lesson in life from long ago
Hold on, hold dear
The time is near
When you'll know why
The spirit flies
Children carried on your back
Driven through the wind and cold
How have you become so few
But in the end, oh, I will see
Your spiritual liberty
Forever to be with you
