Lyrics

Red Cloud

In 1865 at the end of the war
White folks were looking west.
Running railroads and wagon trains. Taking all the best land.
But Red Cloud would put them to the test.

When the 18th Infantry built 3 new forts
That?s when he launched his campaign.
He lured them from safety by stampeding their herds
At the Battle of a Hundred Slain.

Red Cloud wouldn?t pack up. Red Cloud wouldn?t move.
Wouldn?t bow to another?s might.
Out of love for his people he?d stick to what was right.
And Red Cloud would win his fight.

He led so many raids for 2 more years
That no one dared ride the Bozeman road.
Even General Sherman came to cut a deal.
Promised distant lands to get him to go. But...

Red Cloud wouldn?t pack up. Red Cloud wouldn?t move.
Wouldn?t bow to another?s might.
Out of love for his people he?d stick to what was right.
And Red Cloud would win his fight.

He longed to live free.
That was the only way he could be.
So he danced when they brought him the reports.
That the Bluecoats had given up and closed their forts.

Red Cloud didn?t pack up. Red Cloud didn?t move.
Didn?t bow to another?s might.
Out of love for his people he stuck to what was right.
And Red Cloud won his fight.
