Sand Creek River

Versions: #1#2
They have taken our heart
From underneath a dark blanket
Under a small dead moon
We were sleeping without fear
It was a twenty-years-old general
Blue eyes, the same as his coat
It was a twenty-years-old general
Son of a thunderstorm
 
There is a silver dollar at the bottom of Sand Creek
 
Our warriors too far on the bison trail
And that distant music became louder and louder
I closed my eyes three times
But I was still there
I asked my Grandpa is this just a dream?
My Grandpa said yes
 
Sometimes fish sing at the bottom of Sand Creek
 
I dreamed so hard that my nose bled
The flash in one ear, in the other Paradise
The smallest tears,
The biggest tears
When the tree of the snow
Blossomed of red stars
 
Now the children sleep at the bottom of Sand Creek
 
When the sun raised his head
From the shoulders of the night
There were only dogs and smoke and upset tents
I shot an arrow at the sky to let it breathe
I shot an arrow at the wind
To make it bleed
 
Look for the third arrow at the bottom of Sand Creek
 
They have taken our heart From underneath a dark blanket
Under a small dead moon We were sleeping without fear
It was a twenty-years-old general
Blue eyes the same as his coat
It was a twenty-years-old general
Son of a thunderstorm
 
Now the children sleep at the bottom of Sand Creek
