Corey Smith - Cherokee Rose Lyrics

  • Pinestraw on the ground around a fallen Cherokee rose
  • It's got me wonderin' why those mighty winds of change must blow
  • Once this land was free from fences and shotguns
  • Back when the people killed here for food instead of fun
  • When the Earth was sanctified
  • Cherished in the red-man's eyes
  • Before the Cherokee rose
  • The Cherokee rose
  • The Cherokee rose
  • My boots sink down into the soft red Georgia clay
  • Bought with their blood, this land here never was ours to take away
  • Disheartened souls unjustly driven from their homes
  • Many died along the way, now we build our houses upon their bones
  • After all these years
  • I can see the trail of tears
  • Damn this Cherokee rose
  • Oh the Cherokee rose
  • The Cherokee rose
  • Oh they call us the land of the free
  • And the home of the brave
  • But I don't hear much
  • About the injustice that we've done along the way
  • We try to black it out
  • Never think about
  • The price they had to pay
  • We never cry for what was lost
  • Shed a tear for the heavy cost
  • Of what we call "freedom"
  • All the gold in the world couldn't pay the debt we owe
  • We'll never right those wrongs, but I believe we should let them know
  • That we won't forget and sure as hell won't justify
  • And we'll do our best to keep their memories alive
  • Oh the least that we could do
  • Is dedicate one lonesome bloom
  • Won't ya take this Cherokee rose
  • Oh the Cherokee rose
  • The Cherokee rose
  • The Cherokee rose
