No more beautiful moons may we spend on our land
And the long knives have massacred the tribe and burned corn

No more smoke from sacred fires touch these hills
And our children will not leave the Great Spirit's ways
There will be a trail of tears
And Jackson will have the Mississippi and the twenty dollar bill

On the road to Wounded Knee
But the old ones say there may be time learning from each other

There is still a trail of pain
But for us the trail of tears remains
But how long will the trail of tears remain
