Joe Offer Origins: She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain (42) ADD They'll Be Coming Around the Mountain (Abrams) 09 Jun 17

Here's another song based on "Coming 'Round the Mountain":

They'll Be Coming
Traditional music, words by Eileen Abrams
Tune of "She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain

1. Bumpy wagons moving thru the days & nights
They've been travelin' far in search of human rights
Not much comfort or supporters but within this country's borders
They won't quit until they've won all of the fights

They'll be comin' round the mountain when they come
They'll be drivin' six white horses when they come
They'll be talkin' new solutions, women's suffrage, revolution
And we'll all go out to meet them when they come.

2. In Colorado women sought a victory,
Mrs. Stanton headed out with Susan B.
Organizing, speaking, writing, for us all they kept on fighting
Women won the vote out there in '93 CHORUS

3. Women ride (rise?) & join your sisters on the line
It's been struggle after stuggle all the time
Keep your mind upon our heritage, your hearts upon the future
And we'll make it thru the tight spots every time! CHORUS

(First Unitarian-Universalist Church of Detroit)

The song, with lyrics ©1976 by Eileen Abrams, is on page 251 of the Rise Up Singing Songbook.

I'd like to know more about Eileen Abrams and the background of this song.
