Run To The Hills Lyrics

White man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes killed our creed
He took our game for his own need

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?

Riding through dust clouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game
Murder for freedom the stab in the back
Women and children are cowards attack Run to the hills, run for your lives
Run to the hills, run for your lives

Soldier blue in the barren wastes
Hunting and killing their game
Raping the women and wasting the men
The only good Indians are tame
Selling them whiskey and taking their gold
Enslaving the young and destroying the old

Run to the hills, run for your lives

Thoughts & Meanings

A ballad about England and France invading North America... I say England and France as Iron Maiden specifically mention the 'Cree', who only really met England and France due to being so deep in Canada save for a small population in the Far Mid-Northwest USA. en.wikipedia.org/.../Cree As evidence to their territory that they have held for a long time.
