Oh, ho, ho, ho, whoa, oh

They lived in peace
Not long ago
A mighty Indian tribe

But the winds of change
Had made them realize
That the promises were lies

The white man's greed
In search of gold
Made the nation bleed

They had lost their faith
And now they had to learn
There was no place to return
No where they could turn

Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears
Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears

They were driven hard
Across the plains
And hoped for many moons

Cause the winds of change
Had made them realize
That the promises were lies

So much to bear
And all that pain
Left them in despair

They had lost their faith
And now they had to learn
There was no place to return
No where they could turn

Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears
Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears, oh

Yeah, yeah, yeah

(Guitar and synth solos)

Oh, ho, ho, oh, oh

Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears
Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears, oh

Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears
Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears, oh...
