Indian Spring

by Brian Francis

Yellow moon low in the sky

Cherokee river drifts slowly by

I owe my soul to the wide prairie

But my heart is Cherokee

Oh Cherokee river take me home

To the green land rolling hills

Cherokee river my spirit cries

Take me home before I die


In my dreams I can see trees

As far along as the eye can see

In my dream path, I do not roam

Cherokee tears have led me home

A red man’s heart beats in my chest

A red man’s blood flows in my veins

Cherokee dreams yes they are mine

And in those dreams my heart is fine.

This definitely reads like a song - strong, proud rythmn!
