Bruce Cockburn – Indian Wars chords

Chords
Transpose:
Em GOut in the desert where the wind never stops
Em GA few simple people try to grow a few crops
C Am7 GTrying to maintain a life and a home
D C Am7 GOn land that was theirs before the Romans found Rome
Em GA few dozen survivors, ragged but proud
Em GWith a few woolly sheep, under gathering cloud
C Am7 GIt's never been easy, or free from strife
D C Am7 GBut the pulse of the land is the pulse of their life
Em GYou thought it was over but it's just like before
D C Am7 GWill there never be an end to the Indian wars?
Em GIt's not breech-loading rifles and wholesale slaughter
Em GIt's kickbacks and thugs and diverted water
C Am7 GTreaties get signed and the papers change hands
D C Am7 GBut they might as well draft these agreements in sand
Em GNoble Savage on the cinema screen
Em GAn Indian's good when he cannot be seen
C Am7 GAnd the so-called white so-called race
D C Am7 GDigs for itself a pit of disgrace
Em GYou thought it was over but it's just like before
D C Am7 GWill there never be an end to the Indian wars?
