"We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee" as written by Sandy Baron and Pat Vegas....
We were all wounded at wounded knee
You and me
We were all wounded at wounded knee
You and me
In the name of manifest destiny
You and me you and me you and me.

They made us many promises
But always broke their word
They penned us in like Buffalo
Drove us like a heard
And finally on the reservation
We were going for our preservation
We were all wiped out by the seventh Calvary
You and me you and me.

We were all wounded at wounded knee
You and me
We were all wounded at wounded knee
You and me
In the name of manifest destiny
You and me you and me you and me.

Now we make our promises
We won't break our word
Well sing, sing, sing out our story
Till the truth is heard
There's a whole new generation
Which will dream of veneration
Who were not wiped out by the seventh Calvary
You and me you and me.

We were all wounded at wounded knee
You and me
We were all wounded at wounded knee
You and me
In the name of manifest destiny
You and me you and me you and me.

    General CommentWow no comments for this classic? Obviously this is referring to the genocide on the Lakota people by the US troops but I would like to know who the writer is referring to by 'we all'. The whole US or all Native Americans?
