    words by Joni Mitchell
    music by Larry Klein and Joni Mitchell

    I am Lakota!
    Lakota!
    Looking at money man--
    Diggin' the deadly quotas--
    Out of balance--
    Out of hand
    We want the land!
    Lay down the reeking ore!
    Don't you hear the shrieking in the trees?
    Everywhere you touch the earth--she's sore
    Every time you skin her all things weep
    Your money mocks us--
    Restitution--what good can it do?--
    Kennelled in metered boxes
    Red dogs in debt to you

    I am Lakota!
    Lakota!
    Fighting among ourselves
    All we can say with one whole heart
    Is we won't sell--
    No we'll never sell
    We want the land!
    The lonely coyote calls
    In the woodlands--footprints of the deer
    In the barrooms--poor drunk bastard falls
    In the courtrooms--deaf ears--sixty years
    You think we're sleeping--but
    Quietly like rattlesnakes and stars
    We have seen the trampled rainbows
    In the smoke of cars

    I am Lakota
    Brave
    Sun pity me
    I am Lakota
    Broken
    Moon pity me
    I am Lakota
    Grave
    Shadows stretching
    Lakota
    Oh pity me
    I am Lakota
    Weak
    Grass pity me
    I am Lakota
    Faithful
    Rocks pity me
    I am Lakota
    Meek
    Standing water
    Lakota
    Oh pity me

    I am Lakota!
    Lakota!
    Standing on sacred land
    We never sold these Black Hills
    To the missile-heads--
    To the power plants
    We want the land!
    The bullet and the fence--broke Lakota
    The black coats and the booze--broke Lakota
    Courts that circumvent--choke Lakota
    Nothing left to lose
    Tell me grandfather
    You spoke the fur and feather tongues--
    Do you hear the whimpering waters
    When the tractors come?

    Repeat Chorus

    Sun pity me
    Mother earth
    Mother
    Moon pity me
    Father sky
    Father
    Shadows
    Stretching on the forest floor
    Mother earth
    Oh pity me
    Father sky
    Father
    Grass pity me
    Mother earth
    Mother
    Rocks pity me
    Father sky
    Father
    Water
    Standing in a wakan manner
    Mother earth
    Oh pity me
