"Trail of Tears" as written by and Carla Olson Eric Johnson....
Take me from these earth bound chains
I must find it once again
The meaning of equality

We will never hide in shame
But forever guard the flame
Burning for eternity

Hundreds of nights
Oh, my body cries
A trail of tears

Promises sometimes don't keep
Freedom put to sleep
And now I know

Written with the words you tell
Stories, a lesson in life
From long ago

Hundreds of nights
Oh, my body cries
A trail of tears

Hold on, hold dear
The time is near
When you'll know why
The spirit flies

Hundreds of nights
Oh, my body cries
A trail of tears
A trail of tears

Children carried on your back
Driven through the wind and cold
How have you become so few?

But in the end, oh, I will see
Your spiritual liberty
Forever to be with you

Hundreds of nights
Oh, my body cries
A trail of tears

The spirit flies
Hundreds of nights
Oh, my body cries
A trail of tears

Hold on, hold dear
The time is near
When you'll know why
The spirit flies
