BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE
BUFFY SAINTE-MARIE

INDIAN LEGISLATION’S ON THE DESK OF A DO-RIGHT CONGRESSMAN
NOW, HE DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE ISSUE
SO HE PICKS UP THE PHONE
AND HE ASKS ADVICE OF THE SENATOR OUT IN INDIAN COUNTRY
A DARLING OF THE ENERGY COMPANIES
WHO ARE RIPPING OFF WHAT’S LEFT OF THE RESERVATIONS. HUH.

I LEARNED A SAFETY RULE
I DON’T KNOW WHO TO THANK
DON’T STAND BETWEEN THE RESERVATION
AND THE CORPORATE BANK
THEY’LL SEND IN FEDERAL TANKS
IT ISN’T NICE BUT IT’S REALITY

BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE
DEEP IN THE EARTH
COVER ME WITH PRETTY LIES
BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE

HUH. THEY GOT THESE ENERGY COMPANIES
WHO WANT THE LAND
AND THEY’VE GOT CHURCHES BY THE DOZENS
WANT TO GUIDE OUR HAND
AND SIGN OUR MOTHER EARTH OVER TO
POLLUTION, WAR AND GREED
(GET RICH…GET RICH QUICK.)
