Lyrics: Peter La Farge.
Tune: Peter La Farge.


I’m an Indian, an alien.
I’m a stranger in your town.
All your white men’s roads lead upward;
All the Indian’s lead him down.

And the dark feuds flow around me,
The shadows thick as snow.
But I’ve got to keep on singing
For the road knows where I go.

For there’s got to be somebody,
Indian or not,
To be singing on the dark road
To open up the lot.

And you can fill up all your prisons,
Lock and bar the doors.
But for every one you lock up,
There will be a thousand more.

For the red man and the black man,
The yellow, white, and brown,
We walk this road together,
And this road is freedom bound.

I’m an Indian, an alien.
I’m a stranger in your town.
But I’m singing on this dark road,
And this road is freedom bound.
