Well, listen everybody To what I got to say There's hope for tomorrow Ooh,we're workin' on today Well, it happened long time ago In the new magic land The Indian and the buffalo They existed hand in hand
The Indian needed food He needed skins for a roof But he only took what they needed, baby Millions of buffalo were the proof
Yeah,its all right But then came the white man With his thick and empty head He couldn't see past the billfold
He wanted all the buffalo dead It was sad It was sad Oh yeah, yes indeed Oh yes
It happened a long time ago, baby In the new magic land See, the Indian and the buffalo They existed hand in hand
The Indians, they needed some food And some skins for a roof They only took what they needed, baby Millions of buffalo were the proof, yeah
But then came the white dogs With their thick and empty heads They couldn't see past the billfold They wanted all the buffalo dead Everything was so sad
When I looked above the canyon wall Some strong eyes did I see I think its somebody comin' around To save my ass, baby I think, I think he's comin' around To save you and me
I said, above the canyon wall Strong eyes did glow It was the leader of the land, baby
Oh my God! The great white buffalo Look out! Look out!
Well, he got the battered herd He led 'em cross the land With the great white buffalo They gonna make a final stand
The great white buffalo Comin' around to make a final stand Well, look out here he comes
The great white buffalo, baby The great white buffalo Look out, here he comes He's doin' all right
Makin' everything all right Yeah, yeah, yeah

Fabulous Faux Furher from Cosmic Cavernstoo often people miss the meaning of our oldest stories, thinking they're to commemerate a man or other hero. no matter how this telling may differ from any other version, the resolution holds the meaning; a species resolved its extinction crisis through adaptation. one can hope other pessons are imparted to the listener--protection of where one eats from the excrement of invasive species, and that sometimes an ostracized individual's original thought is not the societal death warrant the herd often mistakes it for. too many times these proud white buffalo die in obscurity without recognition for their worth. it is truly sad, and lonely, with only their own satisfaction in living well the way the loved for comfort.

Apparently you can’t read or use common sense. How ironic.
Anonymous from UsaThe Buffalo killing was to kill off our native brothers and sister by killing their food source and use of hides for their survival this goes very deep into the soul of the white man's lack of understanding of my people or their suffering. nuff said
Tedstranglehold from UsofaBow and arrow was the Native American way, not guns. His pervy lyrics are really disgusting knowing he slept with underage girls. But stick up for him, he is your role model Sweatyteddy. Good for you. Ted and Weinstein should be cell mates.
Sweatyteddy from UsaApparently Jim doesn't know what feral hogs do to the habitat, and that hog hunts that are carried out in such away are necessary for the region to remain inhabitable by hundreds to thousands of other species of wildlife and vegetation. But yeah, let's take one situation out of context to try and destroy Ted's character, because you can't grasp simple ecology.
Jim from UsaWith videos of him machine-gunning hogs from a helicopter and an obsession with killing for pleasure, I can't match the theme of this song with Nugent the wildlife serial killer. Either he lost his morals on the way to becoming a full-blown wingnut, or he was a hypocrite all along.
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
