Trail Of Tears

Album: Sure Love (1992)

Songfacts®:

  • Although written for and performed in an entirely different genre, this middle-of-the-road Country & Western song says the same things as Europe's "Cherokee." It also asks the question, "How long will the Trial Of Tears remain?" The answer to that question, sadly, is well into the 21st Century. >>

  • 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.
