My baby left to an eastern shore,
She's gonna be better now, 'cause she don't call.
I pray to the gods in the eastern light,
But I can't shake my shadow in the middle of the night.

She don't swim in the western sea,
The water's too cold now, and I can't breathe.
Lean yourself on the western sun,
Watch the shadow of the Indian run.

And I couldn't leave my land
By the deep doors, my eldest son
Now I hope you understand
Why we keep close two thousand men.

Knees to the floor and I found my home,
She don't tell me nothin' now that I don't know
When I'm near somewhere I was raised
No woman nor child's gonna take me away.

And I couldn't leave my land
By the deep doors, my eldest son
Now I hope you understand
Why we keep close two thousand men.

And I couldn't leave my land
By the deep doors, my eldest son
Now I hope you understand
Why we keep close two thousand men.

And I couldn't leave my land
By the deep doors, my eldest son
Now I hope you understand
Why we keep close two thousand men.

My baby left to an eastern shore
She's gonna be better now, 'cause she don't call.
I pray to the gods of the eastern light,
But I can't shake my shadow in the middle of the night.
