I´m an Indian I´m an alien I´m a stranger in this town.

All the white men´s roads lead upward all ours lead us down.

And the dark feuds flow around me the shadows thick as snow

But I´ve got to keep on singing for the road knows where I go.



Got to be somebody, Indian or not

To be singin´ on the dark road and open up the lot.

And you can fill up all your prisons, lock and bar the doors

But for everyone you lock up, there´ll be a thousand more.



Chorus

I´m an Indian I´m an alien I´m a stranger in this town.

All the white men´s roads lead upward all ours lead us down.

I´m an Indian I´m an alien I´m a stranger in your town.

All the white men´s roads lead upward all ours lead us

They lead us down.



For the red man and the black man, the yellow, white and brown

We walk this road together and this road is freedom bound



I´m an Indian I´m an alien I´m a stranger in this town.

All the white men´s roads lead upward all ours lead us down.

I´m an Indian I´m an alien I´m a stranger in your town.

All the white men´s roads lead upward all ours lead us

They lead us down.

They lead us down.

They lead us down.

They lead us down.



For the red man and the black man, the yellow, white and brown

We walk this road together and this road is freedom bound



I´m an Indian I´m an alien I´m a stranger in this town.

All the white men´s roads lead upward all ours lead us down.

I´m an Indian I´m an alien I´m a stranger in your town.

All the white men´s roads lead upward all ours lead us

They lead us down.
