dark wind blowing on me tonight
my feet are broken and my baby just died
Jackson said we’re not civilized
so we’re moving west he said that’s best
for a savage land, for a savage land

cold snow falling on me today
my horse is tired but still she carries me
I want to go back home, but they burned it down
I want to go back home, but there’s no room
for a savage town, for a savage town

not so many moons ago I watched the Red bird fly
floating circles round and round beneath a hazeless sky
floating round and round and round in a hazeless sky
above a free land, above a free land

hard rage burning my heart tonight
my horse broke down, she died and I’m not going to make it
my blood falls out of me, it’s red just like the president’s
but all he sees is red skin from a savage land
from a savage land

not so many moons ago I watched the Red bird fly
floating circles round and round beneath a hazeless sky
floating cirlcles round and beneath a hazeless sky
above a free land, above a free land

a free land
