Bill Miller
Every Mountain I Climb
from the album Ghostdance (1999)

Bill Miller is a Mohican writer and performer, winner of the 2005 Grammy for Best Native 

American Music Album, and has won 6 Native American Music Awards including Lifetime 

Acheivement (2007). His recent works include a Christian/spiritual albnum and a full 

symphony. However he is best know for his distinctive style combining folk, rock, 

classical, and Native Americn elements, with some very unique musical and lyrical 

phrasing, and performing solo or with minimal backing. When I was broadcasting a Native 

American music radio show, due to his unique style I came up with the phrase "the Bob 

Dylan of Turtle Island" (that being a common Native term for North America). This is the 

song that prompted me to do so.


CI saw Judas Iscariot, with a bottle of wine
Am7talkin suicide with an old friend of mine.
FThey gathered a crowd down at the end of the tracks,
C C - E7and a woman cried out when is god comin' back?
FThey pretended not to notice
Cthey came down hard on the weak.
FCausing war and starvation, refusing
Gto let them speak.
C F GFor every mountain i climb,
C F Gfor every river that winds,
C F Gfor every wind that will blow,
F G CI will send out my prayers for the children below.
[second verse starts on last beat of chorus] I
C Am7... saw crazy horse walkin' alone in the dark
Fon streets paved with the blood oF his broken heart.
C G He never dreamed it would turn out like this.
CThey pretend that they just don't see.
Am7They are blinded in their own mediocrity.
FThey got their trophies and their cars and their houses on the hill,
C C - E7and they don't really care that their wars are a killin' me
F CFor every child that follows the dream
F Gten thousand angels will fly.
FNo one will force them to run.
CThey will stand up and fight,
F G till the battle is won.
C F GFor every mountain i climb,
C F Gfor every river that winds,
C F Gfor every wind that will blow,
F G CI will send out my prayers for the children below.
C F GFor every mountain i climb,
C F Gfor every river that winds,
C F Gfor every wind that will blow,
F G CI will send out my prayers for the children below.
F G Cthe children below
F G Cthe children below
F G Cthe children below
