Tribal Dreams

This song is by Dirt and appears on the compilation album Feast or Famine Scent of the Kill & Beast or Burden (1993).

Indian roamed far from home with squaw and baby on his own
A tribal man so full with pride left alone and cast aside
White man came from far afield to this land to increase his yield
And then the cowboy made his stand and took away the treasured land.He had to hide till he learned to kill and white man's arms he had to steal
The tribal man with dreams so good
Left behind
Indian turned to his son
Your life my child has just begun
This tribal dream we all must learn for without our dream your tribe will burn
"The words Indian and squaw are terms used only by westerners and not the tribes people themselves"
