Allan Harris Performs ‘Blue Was Angry’ From His Musical ‘Cross That River’


Reporter: AND ARE A HUGE PART OF BUILDING THE AMERICAN DREAM. JOINING US NOW IS ALAN HARRIS TO SING ONE OF THE SONGS FROM CROSS THAT RIVER. THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME, CINDY. TELL US WHAT THE SONG IS. IT IS ABOUT RUN AWAY SLAVES IN 1859 FROM LOUISIANA TO TEXAS AND BECOMES A COWBOY. TAKE IT AWAY! I WILL. ♪ I WAS DARK AS MOLASSAS, HAD HAIR LIKE A BUFFALO. RUN AWAY FROM LOUISIANA WHERE I WATCHED MY FOLKS GET SOLD. I WAS ANGRY. I WAS SCARED. [ MUSIC ] I RODE INTO THE WIND. ♪HEARD A STORM WAS BREWING SOMEWHERE WAY BACK EAST. THEY SAW BROTHERS FIGHTING BROTHERS, GOING TO SET THE STREETS. I WAS ANGRY, I WAS SCARED. I KNEW THE OLD SLAVE OWNERS WOULD SOON BE COMING HERE. I’M GOING TO RIDE THAT FREEDOM.
