INDIGO GIRLS - Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee Lyrics

Indian legislation's on the desk of a do right congressmanAnd he don't know much about the issues so he picks up the phoneAnd asks the advice of the senator out in indian countryA darling of the energy companies ripping offWhat's left of the reservationI learned the safety ruleI don't know who to thankDon't stand between the reservationAnd the corporate bankThey're sending federal tanksIt isn't nice but it's realityBury my heart at wounded kneeI said deep in the earthWon't you cover me with pretty liesBury my heart at wounded kneeWe got these energy companiesWho want to take the landAnd we got churches by the dozensTrying to guide our handsAnd turn our mother earthOver to pollution war and greedNo noBury my heart at wounded kneeBury my heart at wounded kneeI said deep in the earthBury my heart at wounded kneeWon't you cover me with pretty liesBury my heart at wounded kneeBury my heart at wounded kneeWe got the federal marshallsWe got the covert spiesWe got the liars by fireAnd the fbiThey lie in court and get nailedAnd still leonard peltier goes off to jail(the bullets don't match the gun)Bury my heart at wounded kneeAn eighth of the reservationBury my heart at wounded kneeWas transferred in secretBury my heart at wounded kneeWe got your murder and intimidationBury my heart at wounded kneeMy girlfriend anna mayTalked about uraniumHer head was full of bulletsAnd her body dumpedThe fbi cut off her handsAnd told us she died of exposureTo bury my heart at wounded kneeBury my heart at wounded kneeI said deep in the earthBury my heart at wounded kneeWon't you cover me with your pretty liesBury my heart at wounded kneeBury my heart at wounded kneeBury my heart at wounded kneeTalk about a revolutionThey stole my landThey won't steal my soulWe had the gold rush warsWhy didn't we learn to crawl? And now our history gets written in a liar's scrawlThey tell me don't be so uptightI mean honey you can still be an indianDown at the y on saturday night''Bury my heart at wounded kneeBury my heart at wounded kneeI said deep in the earthBury my heart at wounded kneeWon't you cover me with your pretty liesBury my heart at wounded kneeBury my heart at wounded kneeBury my heartIt was an eighth of the reservationBury my heartYeah was transferred in secretBury my heartGot your murder, murder, murder and intimidationBury meBury meBury meBury my heartBury my heartBury my heartBury my heart
