    Harriet Tubman by Eloise Greenfield

    Harriet Tubman didn't take no stuff
    Wasn't scared of nothing neither
    Didn't come in this world to be no slave
    And wasn't going to stay one either

    "Farewell!" she sang to her friends one night
    She was mighty sad to leave'em
    But she ran away that dark, hot night
    Ran looking for her freedom

    She ran to woods and she ran through the woods
    With the slave catchers right behind her
    And she kept on going til she got to the NOrth Where those mean men couldn't find her

    Nineteen times she went back South
    To get three hundred others
    She ran for her freedom nineteen times
    To save black sisters and brothers

    Harriet Tubman didn't take no stuff
    Wasn't scared of nothing neither
    Didn't come in this world to be no slave
    And didn't stay one either

    And didn't stay one either
