Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Crow has brought the message
to the children of the sun
for the return of the buffalo
and for a better day to come
Verse 2
You can kill my body
You can damn my soul
for not believing in your god
and some world down below
Verse 3
You don't stand a chance
against my prayers
You don't stand a chance
against my love
They outlawed the Ghost Dance
but we shall live again,
we shall live again
Verse 4
My sister above
She has red paint
She died at Wounded Knee
like a later day saint
Verse 5
You got the big drum in the distance
blackbird in the sky
That's the sound that you hear
when the buffalo cry
Verse 6
You don't stand a chance
against my prayers
You don't stand a chance
against my love
They outlawed the Ghost Dance
but we shall live again,
we shall live again
Verse 7
Crazy Horse was a mystic
He knew the secret of the trance
And Sitting Bull the great apostle
of the Ghost Dance
Verse 8
Come on Comanche
Come on Blackfoot
Come on Shoshone
Come on Cheyenne
Verse 9
We shall live again
Verse 10
Come on Arapaho
Come on Cherokee
Come on Paiute
Come on Sioux
Verse 11
We shall live again
