What does "A few more days till we totter on the road, " mean?

The source is My old Kentucky home..

The head must bow and the back will have to bend,
Wherever the darkies may go.

A few more days and the trouble all will end,
In the field where the sugar-canes grow.

A few more days for to tote the weary load, No matter 'twill never be light.

A few more days till we totter on the road, Then my old Kentucky home, good-night!

Weep no more my lady, oh! weep no more today!

We will sing one song for my old Kentucky home,
For my old Kentucky home far away.

    Totter should be in a dictionary. It means to move unsteadily. This is a song about slavery. I'm assuming it's about a slave who is near death.
