  • They lived in peace, not long ago
    A mighty Indian tribe
    But the winds of change,
    Made them realize, that the promises were lies.

    The white man's greed, in search of gold
    Made the nation bleed
    They lost their faith
    And now they had to learn
    There was no place to return
    Nowhere they could turn.

    Cherokee - marching on the trail of tears.

    They were driven hard, across the plains
    And walked for many moons
    Cause the winds of change,
    Had made them realize, that the promises were lies.

    So much to bear, all that pain
    Left them in despair
    They lost their faith
    And now they had to learn
    There was no place to return
    Nowhere they could turn.
