Busses Are A-Comin’

In a television interview in Nashville on February 7, 2010, discussing the student protests, beatings, arrests, and jail sentences, one of those arrested, former freedom rider Kwame Leo Lillard, said that he and others began singing this song while in jail. It warns the jailers that more busses, more freedom riders, more students, more demonstrators are coming and they had better get ready because "We're gonna keep on coming." It was adapted to the tune of the Christmas Spiritual, Mary Had a Baby.
