railroad:rock island

Rock Island, Iowa: “Crossing the mighty Mississippi, a traveling quartet of former slaves serenaded the passengers. They sang “Deep River” to the mournful whistle and clickety-clack, clickety-clack of the train wheels.”

“Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.”
Psalm 32:7 KJV
