Can you remember the times That you have held your head high and told all your friends of your Indian claim Proud good lady and proud good man Some great great grandfather from Indian blood came and you feel in your heart for these ones
Oh it's written in books and in song that we've been mistreated and wronged Well over and over I hear those same words from you good lady and you good man Well listen to me if you care where we stand and you feel you're a part of these ones
When a war between nations is lost the loser we know pays the cost but even when Germany fell to your hands consider dear lady, consider dear man you left them their pride and you left them their land and what have you done to these ones
Has a change come about my dear man or are you still taking our lands A treaty forever your senators sign They do dear lady, they do dear man and the treaties are broken again and again and what will you do for these ones
Oh it's all in the past you can say but it's still going on here today The governments now want the Navaho land that of the Inuit and the Cheyenne It's here and it's now you can help us dear man Now that the buffalo's gone.
