E  B  G  D
A  G  D

[Verse 1]
EWater was the sacred power
BThat defined the plains
GAnd with the sun promised the earth
G DTo activate the grains
ASo the bison collected to graze with
G DGreasy was the grass grown by the rains
[Verse 2]
E"He who steals the fat comes soon"
BSitting Bull explained
GHe spoke that land was not for men
G DTo loan or exchange
AAfter gold was bellowed from the bluffs that
G DSettlers came to occupy the range
[Verse 3]
EMoney was the white man's god
BHonor was his face
GAnd in his eyes reminders of
G DA way of life erased
ASo the spirits are left with the bison, watch them
G DLiving all their lives on day's gaze
G DMade to worship Bibles in the place
AOf the hunt
[Solo] E B G D A G D [Verse 4]
ESo said Custer to his men
BSurveying the hills
G"They'll vacate to their agencies
G DThe ones that don't we kill"
AAnd what guns and forced relocation can't do
G DAlcohol and isolation will
[Verse 5]
EAfter all the gold was gone
BOil came in its wake
GPaleface drained it out and found
G DA new promise to break
AOnce their land and lore had been stolen there was
G DNothing but their water left to take
G D ANothing but their spirits left to break
GBuffalo Calf Road Woman
GWatched the shadows dancing into the infinite
DCuster's horse became increasingly fast and then
AShe fired the shot to have his body removed from it
G DGreasy was the grass grown by the rains
G DGreasy was the grass grown by the rains
G DGreasy was the grass grown by the rains
AAs they fell
A EmOnto the freezing brave
