Indian Reservation/The Pale Faced Indian (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian) - Marvin Rainwater/John D. Loudermilk/Lewis and Clark Expedition/Don Fardon/The Nashville Teens/The Orlando Riva Sound/The 999/The Long Tall Texans

Indian Reservation

They took the whole Cherokee nation
Put us on this reservation
Took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the bow and knife
Took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation
Though I wear a shirt and tie
I'm still part redman deep inside

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

But maybe someday when they learn
Cherokee nation will return, 
Will return, will return, will return, will return
