"Red Cloud" as written by Bob Whelan and Jeffrey Scott Bluestein....
Climbing up on a hill that they knew well
And on that hillside, like shadows, they fell
Long before the need for bow and shield
When hope spread out like a Tennessee field

Don't wait for me in our spot by the giving tree
You won't find my spirit here, oh, my heart, find it hard

And I leave with so... so many things undone
Would you give my love to the... to the one I'm thinking of?
And I never noticed how the wind will never speak of me again
Regret and I, we walk alone again tonight
In the place we made; we made our pact
What Red Cloud wants, they can't give back

Teach them young; that history is taught by those who've won
Great white father, playing favorites with his favorite sons
A people fall like leaves before the storm
Sleep no longer, oh, you Choctaw and the Iroqouis

Poisoned our water with fire, pushing us from our homes
Taken every promise, leave them broken, broken like stone

And I leave with so... so many things undone
Would you give my love to the... to the one I'm thinking of?
And I never noticed how the wind will never speak of me again
Regret and I, we walk alone again tonight
In the place we made; we made our pact
Play it slow
Took every promise, leave them broken like stones

And I leave with so... so many things undone
Won't you give my love to the... to the one I'm thinking of
I'd give up so much to begin; to be at home with you again
Regret and I, we walk alone again tonight
In the place we made... we made our pact
What Red Cloud wants, they can't give back
What Red Cloud wants, they can never give back
What Red Cloud wants, they can't give back
What Red Cloud wants, they can never give back
What Red Cloud wants, they can never give back
