"Great White Buffalo" as written by and T. Nugent....
Well, listen everybody,
To what I got to say.
There's hope for tomorrow,
Ooh, we're workin 'on today.
Well, it happened long time ago,
In the new magic land.
The Indian and the buffalo,
They existed hand in hand

The Indian needed food,
He needed skins for a roof.
But he only took what they needed,baby.
Millions of buffalo were the proof.

Yeah,its all right.
But then came the white man,
With his thick and empty head.
He couldn't see past the billfold,

He wanted all the buffalo dead.
It was sad
It was sad.
Oh yeah, yes indeed.
Oh yes,

It happened a long time ago, baby.
In the new magic land.
See, the Indian and the buffalo,
They existed hand in hand.

The Indians, they needed some food,
And some skins for a roof.
They only took what they needed,baby.
Millions of buffalo were the proof, yeah.

But then came the white dogs,
With their thick and empty heads.
They couldn't see past the billfold.
They wanted all the buffalo dead.
Everything was so sad.

When I looked above the canyon wall,
Some strong eyes did I see.
I think its somebody comin' around
To save my ass,baby.
I think, I think he's comin' around
To save you and me.

Boys

I said, above the canyon wall
Strong eyes did glow.
It was the leader of the land,baby.

Oh my God
The great white buffalo
Look out! Look out!

Well,he got the battered herd.
He led 'em cross the land.
With the great white buffalo,
They gonna make a final stand.

The great white buffalo,
Comin' around to make a final stand.
Well,look out here he comes.

The great white buffalo, baby.
The great white buffalo
Look out, here he comes.
He's doin' all right.
Makin' everything all right.
Yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentGreat song. Ted kinda sounds like he's a conservationist. I've never heard him talk about conservation outside of this song though. Would be great if he did. Maybe he could get the republican base off some of their stupid policies like "drill baby drill" and all that.
    I swear, some people wouldn't mind burning all U.S.'s forests down and farming the land, just to make some more profit. Then they'd wonder why there is such a pest problem, after they created the perfect environment for them, and destroyed their predators habitat.
    On a side note, that's why the deer population is so high. We removed all the wolves.

    LOL. This is probably too political for this site, but I'm drunk and I'm going to post it anyway.

    My InterpretationWell listen everybody,
    To what I gotta say.
    There's hope for tomorrow,
    If we wake up today.

    Well it happened long ago,
    In the new magic land.
    The Indians and the buffalo,
    Existed hand-in-hand.
    Well the Indians needed food,
    And skins for a roof.
    Only took what they needed,
    Millions of buffalo were the proof.

    I said, hey!

    Well then came the white man,
    With his sick and empty head.
    He couldn't see past the bill-fold,
    He wanted all the buffalo dead.
    So the Indians hid in fear,
    There were no buffalo to be found.
    A magic seemed to be missin',
    Started to look like a barren ground.

    But above the canyon walls,
    Strong eyes did glow.
    The leader of the land,
    The great white buffalo!
    The great white buffalo!
    The great white buffalo!

    Well he saw the 'bandoned herd,
    And he led 'em 'cross the land.
    With the great white buffalo,
    They could make a final stand.

    Hey!

    Oh, listen everybody!
    To what I gotta say!
    There's hope for tomorrow!
    If we wake up today!
    There's hope for tomorrow!
    If we wake up today!
    The great white buffalo!
    That great white buffalo!
    The great!
    White!
    Buffalo!
