  • Derroll Adams: Sioux Indians Lyrics | The Official Derroll Adams Site
    sad one Of trials and troubles and where first begun I left my dear family my friends and my home To cross the great mountains and deserts to roam I crossed the Missouri and joined a large train Which bore us over mountains and valleys and plain And often of an evening a huntin we d go To shoot the fleet antelope and wild buffalo We traveled three weeks till we came to the Platte And we could stand our tents at the head of the flat We spread down our blankets on the green shady ground Where the horses and the asses were grazing around While taking refreshment we heard a loud yell The whoops of Sioux Indians come up from the dell We sprang to our rifles with a flash in each eye And says our brave leader We ll fight till we die They made a bold dash and they came near the train The arrows fell around us like hailing light grain But with our long rifles we fed them hot lead Till a many a brave warrior around us lay dead We shot their bold chief at the head of the band And he died

  • Derroll Adams: The Mountain Lyrics | The Official Derroll Adams Site
    to spend the day I had such fantastic visions I could hardly stand to stay And I stood up with myself And suddenly was free And I stood upon the burdens That puzzle you and me I was given an awareness That was shared with all around With trees the sky the flowers The river sun and ground I heard the birds were singing And I found them same as me And I understood our sorrow And why they should not be I saw this plan of living It was nothing more than face A skin that covered glory Far beyond our love or hate A living crystal fairy land Where living is our grade A pyromanic garden That has no time nor place I saw what we d been doing to it Saw it as insane Still a fighting like good Christians With the wars the sword the flame To crash all those infidels To defend what should be shame And again I shared our sorrows Knew we all must share the blame I saw it all as part of us To know and share alike A universal willingness To know and do what s right To understand our
