    Lyrics

    Was the night - I was young
    When my father called for his first born son
    Took me place at his side
    While this great chief raged in the fire light
    We'd reclaim days of old
    If the tribe would do what his dream foretold

    Praying to the vision of the promised land
    Swaying to the rhythm of the drums
    We were pledging our allegiance to wevoka's plan
    When the shots rang out, there soldiers all around
    And their cannons put an end to our holy singin' of

    (oh) the first cowboys were doing the ghostdance singin'
    (oh) the first cowboys were doing the ghostdance

    Hypnotized by my tale
    Generations learn of the great betrayal long ago
    At wounded knee
    Where our grandfathers bled for what they believed
    Wouldn't buy what they sold - reservation
    Life for our black hills gold

    For praying to the vision of the promised land
    Swaying to the rhythm of the drums
    We were pledging our allegiance to wevoka's plan
    The great spirit cried when our warriors fell to the hail of
    The blue coat's guns (so we're singin')

    (oh) the first cowboys were doing the ghostdance singin'
    (oh) the first cowboys were doing the ghostdance

    For your soul, for your name
    Many brave men's blood's running through your veins
    Leave your mark - walk with pride
    Live in honor to those who gave their lives
    Ancient hearts are still seeking peace -
    As you sing and dance, so you set them free

    For praying to the vision of the promised land
    Swaying to the rhythm of the drums
    Pledging your allegiance to wevoka's plan
    By the marker that stands where our women and children
    Fell to the blue coat's guns (start singin')

    Praying to the vision of the promised land
    Swaying to the rhythm of the drums
    We were pledging our allegiance to wevoka's plan
    When the shots rang out, there soldiers all around
    And their cannons put an end to our holy singin' of
