Story

Annie Belle is a hymn to a black woman who loved me, a young white child, despite all the racial turmoil, because her faith in God was strong. She was much kinder than she had to be to a young, white girl. I will never forget her.

Lyrics

I am walkin' in the footsteps of my Lord I have traveled down many broad highways I've seen death, I've seen sorrow, I've seen misery And I've been a part of many brighter days CHORUS: Oh - I'm still travelin' Oh - I still care I am walkin' in the footsteps of my Lord And wherever he takes me, I'll go there I was born in a cabin in the backwoods I've watched many a man lose his fight Some of them were good, some were bad men But a man is just a man, black or white CHORUS: I can't ever say that I've been perfect But I can say that I've tried really hard To be the kind of woman you can count on And to follow in the footsteps of my Lord CHORUS: I have seen a hundred years come and go now There have been a thousand changes in my life But one thing I can tell you for certain A poor man just a poor man, black or white CHORUS:
