  There was a Buffalo Soldier, 
           F#m 
  In the heart of America

  I mean it, when I analyse the stench, 
C#m7       Bm7      F#m 
  To me it makes a lot of sense 
D             C#m         D

  Fighting on arrival,fighting for survival 
                      A                     F#m

  Buffalo Soldier,in the heart of America

  If you know your history  
C#m7                 Bm7                    F#m 
  Then you would know where your coming from 
D              C#m                  D          
  Then you wouldnt have to ask me_

  Who the heck do I think I am
