We welcomed them as brothers, noing nothing of their greed
born hunters not the hunted, as the white man hunts for me
We are descendants of the animals, we live among them free
Our trail of tears would end

one day at Wounded Knee


E G d e

[E5] great [G5] spirit,
thunderbirds [d5] fly
We are wild and [e5] free

by the [G5] open sky,
[D5] Spirit horse, ride for [E5] me

 A ----------------|

When we do the Ghost Dance, the buffalo will return[
Paint ourselves for war, now blood and fire burn
Great Spirit make us strong, take us to the sky
The Cherokee are brave,

Whroo[E5]aaa Red Cloud [e5 A5]

or something like that;)

E   F# G

[A5] There will be much [d5] more

[E5] Hatchets sing [F#5]with [G5]pride,
[A5] let the white man [d5]die!
