"Medicine Man" as written by and Greta Morgan Salpeter....
[Chorus]
Medicine man, you dance me across the country
Medicine man, you dance me across the sky
Medicine man, now my feet are dragging
Medicine man, can you hear my cry?

I don't wanna be
The one, the one, the one
That you forget
I don't, I don't, I don't
Just want to be your regret

[Chorus]
Medicine man, I lay my head in your hands
Medicine man, you will clear my mind
Medicine man, can you heal my body?
Medicine man, can you hear my cry?

I don't wanna be
The one, the one, the one
That you forget
I don't, I don't, I don't
Just want to be your regret

I don't know where to begin
I don't know how to break
The bottle I'm living in
Do anything to take away
The memory of him
Can't you see that I have no way out
From leaving now?

[Chorus]
Medicine man, clear my mind
Medicine man, whoa
Medicine man, hear my cry
Medicine man, no
Medicine man, you are here in my mind
Medicine man, oh
Medicine man, hear my cry
Medicine man, whoa
Medicine man, medicine man
Medicine man, whoa

    General CommentWow no comments yet?
    This song is great.
    The Medicine Man was known to be a great spirit of healing in the Native American culture. I think this song is about wanting to moving on and such.
    I'm very excited for their new album.

    General CommentJust a suggestion, the term "Medicine Man" is also a reference to cannabis... I'm not saying that this is what the song is about, but it is a possibility. Reading over the lyrics, it makes sense.

    General CommentWow.

    Greta's voice was really pretty before, but now it's more jazzy and sexy than pretty. It's great.

    General CommentThe Medicine Man in this song is her ex.

    "Medicine man, you dance me across the country
    Medicine man, you dance me across the sky
    Medicine man, now my feet are dragging
    Medicine man, can you hear my cry?"
    - She's talking about how he once made her happy but now she's falling and wants him to save her.

    "I don't wanna be
    The one, the one, the one
    That you forget
    I don't, I don't, I don't
    Just want to be your regret"
    - The "you" is obviously referring to the Medicine Man. She doesn't want him to forget her.

    General Commenti think this song is about a woman who meets a man who does drugs and he introduces her to drugs and she becomes dependent on them and him.

    General CommentI think she's on drugs.

    Medicine man, you dance me across the country
    Medicine man, you dance me across the sky

    There, she's obviously like flyin high.

    Medicine man, now my feet are dragging
    Medicine man, can you hear my cry?

    &There she's comming off her high.



    I don't wanna be
    The one, the one, the one
    That you forget

    She doesn't want to get lost in drug use and addicted.


    Medicine man, I lay my head in your hands

    She wants the drugs to save her.

    Medicine man, you will clear my mind
    Medicine man, can you heal my body?
    Medicine man, can you hear my cry?

    She wants to know if they will help.
