Trail Of Tears

	  		         G                       D 
No more beautiful moons may we spend on our land 
         C                   D              G 
In the north, the scarlet council talks of war 
         G                               D 
And the long knives have massacred the tribe and burned cold 
           C               D           G 
We're not welcome in our homeland anymore 

         G                           D 
No more songs of the hunters on the buffalo plain 
         C                   D              G 
No more smoke from sacred fires touch these hills 
         G                           D 
And the numbers of the people grow fewer every mile 
         C                   D              G 
And our children will not learn the Great Spirit's ways 

                  C        G 
There will be a trail of tears 
                  C        Em 
There will be a trail of pain 
                  C         G                   D            Em 
And Jackson will have the Mississippi and the twenty dollar bill 
         C               D                G 
But for us the trail is all that will remain 


         G                           D 
On the streets of rapid City On the road to Wounded Knee 
         C                   D              G 
There is whiskey for forgetting everything 

         G                              D 
But the old ones say there may be time for learning from each other 
     C                   D              G 
The way that it had once been meant to be 

                  C        G 
There will be a trail of tears 
                  C        Em 
There will be a trail of pain 
                  C         G                   D            Em 
And Jackson has got the Mississippi and the twenty dollar bill 
         C              D          G 
But for us the trail of tears remains 
               C         G                   D            Em 
And Jackson's got the Mississippi and the twenty dollar bill 
        C               D                G 
But how long will the trail of tears remain
