Run to the Hills Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
White man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes, he killed our creed
He took our game for his own need
Verse 2
We fought him hard we fought him well
Out on the plains we gave him hell
But many came too much for cree
Oh will we ever be set free?
Verse 3
Riding through dustclouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game
Murder for freedom a stab in the back
Women and children and cowards attack
Verse 4
Run to the hills run for your lives
Run to the hills run for your lives
Verse 5
Soldier blue on the barren wastes
Hunting and killing their game
Raping the women and wasting the men
The only good indians are tame
Selling them whisky and taking their gold
Enslaving the young and destroying the old
Verse 6
Run to the hills run for your lives
(repeat to end)
