Cherokee

Album: Fight To Survive (1984)

Songfacts®:

  • Running to 4 minutes 56 seconds and co-written by vocalist Mike Tramp and guitarist Vito Bratta, "Cherokee" is the second track off the band's 1984 Fight To Survive album.

    Although melodically and lyrically it is nothing like the earlier song of the same name by Europe, it says the same thing in different words. >>
