Trail Of Tears

John Denver

 GEm
No more  beautiful moons may we  spend on our lands
 CDGD
In the  north the scarlet  councils talks of  war   
 GEm
And the  long knives have massacred the  tribe and burned
corn
 CDG
We?re not  welcome in our  homeland any  more

 CDG
There will be a  trail  of  tears
 CDEmEm/g
There will be a  trail  of  pain   
 CGC
And  Jackson will  have the Missisis  ippi and the  twenty
 G
dollar  bill
 CDG
But for  us the trail is  all that will re  main

 GEm
No more  songs of the hunters on the  buffalo plain
 CDGD
No more  smoke from sacred  fires touch these  hills   
 GEm
And the  numbers of the people will grow  fewer every mile
 CDG
And our  children will not  learn the Great Spirits  way

 CDG
There will be a  trail  of  tears
 CDEmEm/g
There will be a  trail  of  pain   
 CGC
And  Jackson will  have the Missis  sippi and the  twenty
 G
dollar  bill
 CDG
But for  us the trail is  all that will re  main

 GEm
On the  streets of Rapid City on the  road to Wounded Knee
 CDGD
There is  whiskey for for  getting every  thing   
 GEm
But the  old ones say there may be time from  learning from
each other
 CDG
The  way that it had  once been meant to  be

 CDG
There is still a  trail  of  tears
 CDEmEm/g
There is still a  trail  of  pain   
 CGC
And Jackson has  got  the Missis  sippi and the  twenty
 G
dollar  bill
 CDG
But for  us the trail of  tears re  main
 CGC
Jackson has  got the Missis  sippi and the  twenty dollar
 G
  bill
 CDG
But how  long will the  trail of tears re  main
