Paul and Silas, Bound in Jail

Lyrics Attributed to Alice Wine

The tune and structure is based on the Spiritual
Keep your hand on the plough

Paul and Silas, bound in jail
Had no money for to go their bail

Keep your eyes on the prize,

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on,

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on!


The very moment we thought we was lost,
Dungeon shook and the chains fell off,
Keep your eyes on the prize,

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on,

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on!


Only thing that we did wrong
Was stayin' in the wilderness so long,
Keep your eyes on the prize,

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on,

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on!


Only thing that we did right
Was the day we begun to fight!
Keep your eyes on the prize,

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on,

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on!

This was the sort of song we sang at Freedom School
Pete Seeger sings it in his Carnegie Hall concert album

Pertinent Mudcat Café thread
