Ii Ii ou Ii Ii Ii ou Ii Ii ou
I see an eagle in space my people will follow oh oh a vanishing race

And he gazed below with a heart of woe where the prairie schooners sail
A vanishing race appeared in space and he sang his sad refrain
Ii Ii ou Ii Ii Ii ou Ii Ii ou
Oh now great spirits on high please spare them the sorrow you show to my eye oh oh

And I ride to the valley of the brave Navajo oh oh
Ii Ii ou Ii Ii Ii ou Ii Ii ou
