Apache Tears

C C G G C C F F
Hoof prints and foot prints, deep ruts the wagons made
C C G G C C G G
The victor and the loser came by here
C C G G C C F F
No head stones but these bones bring Mescalero death moans
C C F F G G C C
See the smooth black nuggets by the thousands laying here
C C F F G G C C
Petrified but justified are these Apache tears


C C G G C C F F
Dead grass, dry roots, hunger crying in the night
C C G G C C G G
Ghost of broken hearts and laws are here
C C G G C C F F
And who saw the young squaw they judged by their whiskey law
C C G G C C
Tortured till she died of pain and fear
C C F F G G C C
Where the soldiers lay her back are the black Apache tears


C C G G C C F F
The young men, the old men, the guilty and the innocent
C C G G C C G G
Bled red blood and chilled alike with fear
C C G G C C F F
The red men, the white men, no fight ever took this land
C C G G C C
So don't raise the dust when you pass here
C C F F G G C C
They're sleeping and in my keeping are these Apache tears
