Lyrics

Verse 1:
First thing that they thought they saw was a friend, sent there to help them all along.
But the friend turned out to be someone who would take all they loved, still tell ‘em they were livin’ free.

Chorus:
But they didn’t break down and start to cry till they looked in the fields,
and all their buffalo were gone.

Verse 2:
They were all called long haired savages, for defending land, that was their’s by their birthright.
And the ones that wouldn’t move on had to stand up and die, as they tried to fight for life.

Repeat Chorus:

Verse 3:
Bows and knives can’t stop a gun and they were pushed back, to near extinction Lord.
As they were forced into their desert of doom, all the laws of the land, quickly faded out of sight.

Repeat Chorus:

Tag:
No they didn’t break down and start to cry till they looked in the fields
and all their buffalo were gone.
