VERSE Thunder rolled in off the hills
Light?nin? split the sky
Reservations have been filled
And still the white man ride

VERSE A thousand soldiers can?t be stilled
With arrows and a knife
All my people have been killed
And still the white man ride

VERSE Now fact?ries sprang up on my land
The buffalo have died
Progress gave no helpin? hand
And still the white man ride
Oh still the white man ride

BREAK

VERSE Well, all my people?s history
Has vanished overnight
Keep me down with poverty
And still the white man ride

VERSE Spread your freedom eagerly
Teach me how to die
Give me back my ancestry
And still the white man ride
Oh still the white man ride

TAG Yeah, still the white man ride
Oh, still the white man ride
