Bruce Springsteen + Little Steven - NATIVE AMERICAN 1987



NATIVE AMERICAN

[Steven and Bruce]
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah Woh
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah Woh
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah Woh*

[Steven] Life was forever when we were young
[Bruce] The land was protected for everyone
[Both] Forever as long as the rivers run
[Steven] But now the water no longer comes

[Steven and Bruce]
And now all that remains
Is darkness a poisoned Earth
And now before it's too late
We must provide our own new birth

I am Native American
I am Native American

[Bruce] The question of honor you must decide
[Steven] The soul of the nation has been denied
[Both] Our dreams have been stolen before our eyes
[Bruce] How do you say there's no tomorrow to a child?

[Steven and Bruce]
From us there is much to learn
There is so much you've forgotten
You can't change me
Try and understand I am proud of who I am

I am Native American
I am Native American

[Steven] We must try and remember what we're here for
[Bruce] You will suffer the darkness alone no more
[Both] You will have the strength of all of us gathered here today
[Bruce] That is something they can never take away

[Steven and Bruce]
I am Native American
I am Native American

Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah Woh
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah Woh
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah Woh
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah Woh
Ho Ka Hey Wah Nah [fade]
