Rosa Rosa, Roll On
Song for Teaching Rosa Parks' Contribution to U.S. History
Marla Lewis


This song is available on Marla Lewis' Rosa Rosa, Roll On

Rosa sat and took a stand
Roll on to freedom, Rosa, Rosa roll on!
With a lion’s heart and a trembling hand
Roll on to freedom, Rosa, Rosa roll on!

Refused to give up her seat on the bus
Roll on to freedom, Rosa, Rosa roll on!
She had no plan, just had enough
Roll on to freedom, Rosa, Rosa roll on!

The heart cries out, like a beating drum
The heart cries out, for freedom

They arrested Rosa, and took her away
Roll on to freedom, Rosa, Rosa roll on!
Fifty thousand stopped riding busses next day
Roll on to freedom, Rosa, Rosa roll on!

The boycott lasted more than 12 months long.....
.....

The heart cries out, like a beating drum
The heart cries out, for freedom

The Movement swept across the nation
Marches, sit-ins, demonstrations
Singing, We Shall Overcome
Equal Rights for everyone!

Laws were passed, for the changing times.....
.....

As Rosa said, “There are many like me
Roll on to freedom, Rosa, Rosa roll on!....
.....

The heart cries out, like a beating drum
The heart cries out, for freedom
