G G                             C C              G G
From the Indian, reservation, to the govern, mental school
C C G G D D
Well they're goin, to educate me, to the white men's, Golden Rule
G G C C G G
And I'm learning, very quickly, for I've learned, to be ashamed
C C G G D D G G
And I come, when they call Billy, though I've got, an Indian name

G G C C G G
And there are drums, beyond the mountain, Indian drums, that you can't hear
C C G G D D G G
There are drums, beyond the mountain, and they're getting, mighty near

G G C C G G
And when they, think that they'd changed me, cut my hair, to meet their needs
C C G G D D
Will they think, I'm white or Indian, quarter blood, or just half breed
G G C C G G
Let me tell you, Mr Teacher, when you say, you'll make me right
C C G G D D G G
In five hundred, years of fighting, not one Indian, turned white

G G C C G G
And there are drums, beyond the mountain, Indian drums, that you can't hear
C C G G D D G G
There are drums, beyond the mountain, and they're getting, mighty near

G G C C G G
Well you thought, that I knew nothing, when you brought, me here to school
C C G G D D
Just another, empty Indian, just America's, first fool
G G C C G G
But now I, can tell you stories, that are burnt, and dried and old
C C G G D D G G
But in the shadow, of their telling, walks the thunder, proud and bold

G G C C G G
And there are drums, beyond the mountain, Indian drums, that you can't hear
C C G G D D G G
There are drums, beyond the mountain, and they're getting, mighty near

G G C C G G
Long Pine, and Sequoia, Handsome Lake, and Sitting Bull
C C G G D D
There's Magnus, Colorado, with his sleeves, so red and full
G G C C G G
Crazy, Horse the legend, those who bit off, Custer's soul
C C G G D D G G
They are dead, yet they are living, with the great, Geronimo

G G C C G G
And there are drums, beyond the mountain, Indian drums, that you can't hear
C C G G D D G G
There are drums, beyond the mountain, and they're getting, mighty near

G G C C G G
Well you may teach me, this land's hist'ry, but we taught it, to you first
C C G G D D
We broke your hearts, and bent your journeys, broken treaties, left us cursed
G G C C G G
Even now, you have to cheat us, even though, you think us tame
C C G G D D G G
In our losing, we found proudness, in your winning, you found shame

G G C C G G
And there are drums, beyond the mountain, Indian drums, that you can't hear
C C G G D D G G
There are drums, beyond the mountain, and they're getting, mighty near
