Buffalo Jump

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Real Estate (1988).

I'm the child of the great Cree nation
See me I'm my father's son
We live by the great bull
See me I'm the wild one

This morning we are ready
To show the buffalo our knives
And by the red of sunset
We'll have relieved them of their lives

Buffalo jump, feel the thunder
Buffalo jump, across the plains
Buffalo jump, kill the hunger
Crashing over the cliffs of pain

The beast has well been gathered
We could have had a thousand more
We'll run them to the edge
And they'll tumble out through death's dark door

And soon the blood will flow like water
Through these sun bleached ancient bones
It will revive this dusty land
On which our seeds of life are thrown

Buffalo jump, feel the thunder
Buffalo jump, across the plains
Buffalo jump, kill the hunger
Crashing over the cliffs of pain

See me I am the bravest
I'm the strongest of us all
I'll stand beside the river's edge
And watch the great black waterfall

I'm a child of the great Cree nation
See me I'm my father's son
We live by the great bull
See me I'm the wild one

Buffalo jump, feel the thunder
Buffalo jump, across the plains
Buffalo jump, kill the hunger
Crashing over the cliffs of pain
