When the First Quail Calls


*
One starry night a indian named Peg Leg Po sang "Follow the Drinking Gorge.When the sun comes up and the first quail calls follow the drinking gorge."
Peg Leg Po would go to all of the indian slavery places at night. He would teach all of vthe indians of all different tribes "Follow the Drinking Gorge."
Every night the indian slaves would sing "When the sun comes up and the first quail calls follow the drinking gorge." When the sun arose the indian slaves would to sneak out of the slavery plantation.
When their masters were very close,they would make the call of a quail and whoever's porchlight would go on they would know it would be safe to go in the house and stay until their masters would go back to the indian plantation. Then they would continue on their journey.
