Em                           Am
They took the whole Cherokee nation,
                    Em
put us on this reservation
                      Am
Took away our ways of life,
                             Em
the tomahawk and the bow and knife
                     Am
Took away our native tongue,
                                Em
and taught their English to our young
                             Am
And all the beads we made by hand,
                       Em
are nowadays made in Japan

Em             Bm
Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
Em               B7
So proud to live, so proud to die

Em                         Am
They took the whole Indian nation,
                       Em
locked us on this reservation
                          Am
Though I wear a shirt and tie,
                              Em
I'm still part red man deep inside

Em             Bm
Cherokee people, Cherokee  tribe
Em              B7
So proud to live, so proud to die

Em                             Am
But maybe someday when they've learned,
                       Em    Am     Em  
Cherokee nation will return, will return,
Am     Em    Am     Em    Am     Em
will return, will return, will return
