"Indian Reservation" (karaoke)

"Indian Reservation" (sheet music)


They took the whole Cherokee Nation

And put us on this reservation

They took away our ways of life

The tomahawk and the bow and knife

 

They put our papoose in a crib

And took the buckskin from our rib

They took away our native tongue

And taught their English to our young

 

Cherokee people

Cherokee tribe

So proud to live

So proud, you die

 

They took the whole Indian Nation

And locked us on this reservation

Our songs and dances, we loved so

They're using now just for a show

 

And all the beads we made by hand

Are nowadays made in Japan

And 'though I wear a white man's tie

I'll be a red man 'til I die

 

Cherokee people

Cherokee tribe

So proud to live

So proud, you die

 

Oh, they changed our ways of old

Want to change our heart and soul

But maybe someday when they've learned

The Cherokee Nation will return

 

Cherokee people

And maybe someday when they've learned

The Cherokee Nation will return

 

Will return

Will return

Will return

Will return
