INDIGO GIRLS


Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee (studio Version) Lyrics

indian legislation's on the desk of the do right Congressman
now he don't know much about the issues so he picks up the phone
and asks the advice of the senator out in indian country
a darling of the energy companies their ripping off
what's left of the reservation
i learned the safety rule
i don't know who to thank
don't stand between the reservation
and the corporate bank
they're sending federal tanks
it isn't nice but it's reality
bury my heart at wounded knee
deep in the earth
i said cover me with pretty lies
bury my heart at wounded knee
they got these energy companies
who want to take the land
and they got churches by the dozens
trying to guide our hands
and turn our mother earth
over to pollution war and greed
well
bury my heart at wounded knee
bury my heart at wounded knee
i said deep in the earth
bury my heart at wounded knee
won't you cover me with your pretty lies
bury my heart at wounded knee
bury my heart at wounded knee
they got the federal marshalls
we get the covert spies
we get the liars by fire
we get the fbi
they lie in court and get nailed
and still leonard peltier goes off to jail
(the bullets don't match the gun)
bury my heart at wounded knee
an eighth of the reservation
bury my heart at wounded knee
it was transferred in secret
bury my heart at wounded knee
we got your murder and intimidation
bury my heart at wounded knee
my girlfriend anna may
talked about uranium
her head was full of bullets
and her body dumped
the fbi cut off her hands
and told us she died of exposure
yeah right
bury my heart at wounded knee
bury my heart at wounded knee
oh deep in the earth
bury my heart at wounded knee
won't you cover me with pretty lies
bury my heart at wounded knee
bury my heart at wounded knee
bury my heart at wounded knee
talk about a revolution
we had the gold rush wars
why didn't we learn to crawl?
and now our history gets written in a liar's scrawl
they tell me " honey you can still be an indian
down at the y on saturday night''
bury my heart at wounded knee
bury my heart at wounded knee
i said deep in the earth
bury my heart at wounded knee
and cover me with your pretty lies
bury my heart at wounded knee
bury my heart at wounded knee
bury my heart
it was an eighth of the reservation
bury my heart
it was transferred in secret
bury my heart
got your murder, murder, murder and intimidation
bury me
bury me
bury me
bury my heart
bury my heart
bury my heart
bury my heart
