Now that the Buffalo's Gone (Buffy Sainte Marie) C G Can you remember the times C That you have held your head high? F C And told all your friends of your Indian claim G C Proud good lady and proud good man, F C Your great great grandfather from Indian blood sprang D D7 G G7 And you feel in your heart for these ones Oh it's written in book and in songs That we've been mistreated and wronged Well over and over I hear the same words From you, good lady, and you, good man Well listen to me if you care where we stand And you feel you're a part of these ones When a war between nations is lost The loser, we know, pays the cost But even when Germany fell to your hands Consider, dear lady, consider, dear man, You left them their pride and you left them their land And what have you done to these ones? Has a change come about Uncle Sam Or are you still taking our lands? The treaty forever George Washington signed He did, dear lady, he did, dear man, And the treaty's been broken by the Kinzua Dam And what will you do to these ones? Oh it's all in the past you can say But it's still going on here today The government now wants the Iroquois land That of the Seneca and the Cheyenne It's here and it's now you must help us dear men, Now that the buffalo's gone. copyright Buffy Ste.
