lyrics

The Ghost Of Crazy Horse - purpose/zollo

(Dm)You saw all the signs that were (C2)revealed
And you were the last to yield (G5)
At the battlefield near (F)Yellow(A2)stone
Where they tried to (Dm)beat you

By river banks and in between
The rocks of the ravine
They took your horses and your guns
And they could not defeat you

CHORUS
(F) But I see you in (C)warpaint and in beads
(Dm)Like a bi(C2)son in the (G5)reeds(A2)
(Gm2)Following the (Dm)river to its source
(Bb)With the (C)ghost of Crazy (Dm)Horse

You heard the beating of the drum
The generations still to come
A thousand souls at heaven's door
Dying to be reborn

You saw the cradle of the skies
Where the yellow eagle flies
O'er the brambles and the brush
'Round Little Big Horn

CHORUS:
But I see you in warpaint and in beads
Like a bison in the reeds
Following the river to it's source
With the ghost of Crazy Horse

Now all is silent as a dream
Save the rushing of the stream
And the bluejays' wind borne song
On the scarlet skyways

Over graves and sycamores
Your unbroken spirit soars
Like a thunderbird of fire
Down eternal highways

CHORUS
But I see you in warpaint and in beads
Like a bison in the reeds
Following the river to it's source
With the ghost of Crazy Horse
The ghost of Crazy Horse
The ghost of Crazy Horse
