    As I awoke the evening with the smell of woodsmoke clinging
    Like a gentle cobweb hanging upon a painted teepee
    Oh I wen to see my chieftain with my war lance and my woman
    For he told us that the yellow moon would very soon me leaving

    This I can't believe I said, I can't believe our
    Warlord's dead
    Oh, he would not leave the chose ones to the buzzards
    and the soldiers guns

    Oh, great father of the Iroquois ever since I was young
    I've read the writing of the smoke and breast-fed on the sound of drums
    I've learned to hurl the tomahawk and ride a painted pony wild
    To run the gauntlet of the Sioux, to make a chieftain's daughter mine

    And now you ask that I should watch the red man's race be slowly crushed!
    What kind of words are these to hear from Yellow Dog, whom the white man fears?

    I take only what is mine Lord, my pony, my squaw, and my child
    I can't stay to see you die along with my tribe's pride
    I got to search for the yellow moon and the Fathers of our sons,
    Where the red sun sinks in the hills of gold, and the healing waters run

    Trampling down the prairie rose, leaving hoof tracks in the sand
    Those who wish to follow me, I welcome with my hands
    I heard from passing renegades Geronimo was dead,
    He'd been laying down his weapons when they filled him full of lead

    Now there seems no reason why I should carry on,
    In this land that once was my land, I can't find a home
    It's lonely and it's quiet and the horse soldiers are coming,
    And I think it's time I strung my bow and ceased my senseless running
    For soon I'll find the yellow moon, along with my loved ones
    Where the buffaloes graze in clover fields without the sound of guns

    And the red sun sinks at last into the hills of gold
    And peace to this young warrior comes with a bullet hole
