lyrics

Meet Me at the Station
(c) 2013 Pamela Cardullo Ortiz

Meet me at the station
Ride these rails of hope
It needs no explanation
Slip off the hanging rope
Choose a life of peace with me
Where what you earn is yours.
Together we will stand secure.
Together we will stand secure.

Meet me at the station
I’ll be waiting there
There’s a brighter nation
For those who pay the fare.
In the North, it’s not a crime
To be a poor, black man in debt.
Leave these fields with no regret.
Leave these fields with no regret.

Meet me on the platform
Climb aboard that train
Come embrace the future
Sing a new refrain
Come enjoy the full and fruitful
Labor of your hands
In a bright, new promised land.
In a bright, new promised land.

Labor in the cane fields
Produces syrup sweet
But all that you can savor
Is somehow incomplete
All your efforts line the pockets
Of he who owns the land
In the fields you’re half a man.
In the fields you’re half a man.

Join us in the city
Hear the factory bell.
There’s work for every man there
One can live quite well.
We’ll rent a room and raise our children
Free from fear and care
Freedom’s only sweet when shared.
Freedom’s only sweet when shared.
