Song Description

The hanging of John Brown and the civil war, with out choosing sides..the effects and hope that brothers would again walk arm and arm and enslaved men would live in the world of freedom

Story Behind the Song

The effect of John Brown on the world

Lyrics

Deep in the River
Blood runs deep in the river
Rollin' down from the hill
Where they hung John Brown for treason
Dyin for a man's free will

They burned the farms down in Georgia
Stole all the cattle from the fields
Loved my sweet wife all alone
Left poor babies in the road

Blood runs deep in the river

A free man born every hour
From a new man findin' his way
From an old world proclamation
From the trouble and the pain

Maybe you will leave here free
The water carry you away
Maybe you will live to see
Brothers arm and arm someday

Blood runs deep in the river
Rollin' down from the hill
Where they hung John Brown for treason
Dyin for a man's free will

Dyin for a man's free will
