Coronado 

(With respect to Neil Young’s “Cortez the Killer”)


Well they came across the ocean
With a dream of finding gold
And they marched across the mountains
To where the buffalo once roamed

And the Black Robes went before them
To turn heathens into stone
And they gave them poison blankets
And they promised to take them home

Where are all the warriors?
Where have they all gone?
And where are all the leaders
To right what we have wronged?

[Drumbeat of the warrior.]

Geronimo roamed the desert
Crazy Horse roamed the plains
And they vowed to fight forever
While the blood flowed through their veins

So they took them all to prisons
That the white man calls reserves
And they fed them moldy biscuits
While they laid waste to the earth

Where are all the warriors?
Where have they gone?
And where are all the leaders
To right what we’ve done wrong?

[Drumbeat of the warrior.]
