Wooden Indian


Em (with hammer-ons and pull-offs on the D string) Em I, I was a red man, I was proud, I was strong. Em You were the white man and you stole away my home. Em Now I am a wooden Indian, painted dreams inside my head. Em Times the way you bring me down make me wish that I was dead. Em Na, na, na-na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na, Em Na, na, na-na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na.

I, I was a red man, in my passing made no sound.
You were the white man and you drove me in the ground.
Now I am a wooden Indian standing silent in the rain.
I swear by my grandfather's father, we're gonna rise again.

Na, na, na-na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na,
Na, na, na-na-na-na, na, na, na-na-naaaw.

I, I was a red man, I was proud, I was strong.
You were the white man and you stole away my home.
Now I am a wooden Indian standing silent in the rain.
I swear by my grandfather's father, we're gonna rise again.

(Words and music by John Denver, 1971)
