Soon I will be here no more You'll hear my tale Through my blood Through my people And the eagle's cry The bear within will never lay to rest
Wandering on Horizon Road Following the trail of tears
White man came Saw the blessed land We cared, you took You fought, we lost Not the war but an unfair fight Sceneries painted beautiful in blood
Wandering on Horizon Road Following the trail of tears Once we were here Where we have lived since the world began Since time itself gave us this land
Our souls will join again the wild Our home in peace 'n war 'n death
Wandering on Horizon Road...
" I still dream every night Of them wolves, them mustangs, those endless prairies The restless winds over mountaintops The unspoilt frontier of my kith n'kin The hallowed land of the Great Spirit I still believe In every night In every day I am like the caribou And you like the wolves that make me stronger We never owed you anything Our only debt is one life for our Mother It was a good day to chant this song For Her
Our spirit was here long before you Long before us And long will it be after your pride brings you to your end "
