Trail Of Tears

by

Hal Ketchum



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Although written for and performed in an entirely different genré, this middle of the road Country & Western song says the same things as Europe's "Cherokee". It also asks the question how long with the Trial Of Tears remain? The answer to that question, sadly, is well into the Twenty-First Century. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)
This was written by Randy Handley, who fronted a local band in Denver before moving to Nashville and focusing on songwriting. Among the artists to record his songs are John Mellencamp and Garth Brooks.
