Robbie Robertson — Ghost Dance lyrics

Crow has brought the message
To the children of the sun
For the return of the buffalo
And for a better day to come
You can kill my body
You can damn my soul
For not believing in your God
And some world down below
You don't stand a chance
Against my prayers
You don't stand a chance
Against my love
They outlawed the Ghost Dance
They outlawed the Ghost Dance
We shall live again
We shall live again
My sister above
She has red paint
She died at Wounded Knee
Like a latter day Saint
You got the big drum in the distance
The Blackbirds in the sky
That's the sound that you hear
When the buffalo cry
You don't stand a chance
Against my prayers
You don't stand a chance
Against my love
They outlawed the Ghost Dance
They outlawed the Ghost Dance
We shall live again
We shall live again
We shall live again
Crazy Horse was a mystic
He knew the secret of the trance
And Sitting Bull the great apostle
Of the Ghost Dance
Come on Comanche
Come on Blackfoot
Come on Shoshone
Come on Cheyenne
We shall live again
We shall live again
Come on Arapaho
Come on Cherokee
Come on Paiute
Come on Sioux
We shall live again
We shall live again
We used to do the Ghost Dance
We shall live again
We used to do the Ghost Dance
We don't sing them kind of songs no more
