Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee - Indigo Girls lyrics


Indian legislations on the desk of a do right congressman

And he dont 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 ripping off

Whats left of the reservation

I learned the safety rule

I dont know who to thank

Dont stand between the reservation

And the corporate bank

Theyre sending federal tanks

It isnt nice but its reality

Bury my heart at wounded knee

I said deep in the earth

Wont you cover me with pretty lies

Bury my heart at wounded knee

We got these energy companies

Who want to take the land

And we got churches by the dozens

Trying to guide our hands

And turn our mother earth

Over to pollution war and greed

No no

Bury my heart at wounded knee

Bury my heart at wounded knee

I said deep in the earth

Bury my heart at wounded knee

Wont you cover me with pretty lies

Bury my heart at wounded knee

Bury my heart at wounded knee

We got the federal marshalls

We got the covert spies

We got the liars by fire

And the fbi

They lie in court and get nailed

And still leonard peltier goes off to jail

(the bullets dont match the gun)

Bury my heart at wounded knee

An eighth of the reservation

Bury my heart at wounded knee

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

To bury my heart at wounded knee

Bury my heart at wounded knee

I said deep in the earth

Bury my heart at wounded knee

Wont you cover me with your pretty lies

Bury my heart at wounded knee

Bury my heart at wounded knee

Bury my heart at wounded knee

Talk about a revolution

They stole my land

They wont steal my soul

We had the gold rush wars

Why didnt we learn to crawl?

And now our history gets written in a liars scrawl

They tell me "dont be so uptight

I mean 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

Wont you 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

Yeah 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
