[Instrumental] The light is long the sun is low I’m riding fast across this dusty road But I don’t want to be, no I don’t want to be Above the ridge an eagle flies in lazy circles in the western skies I want to fly with him I want to walk the spirit trail [Instrumental] I’ve seen them come I’ve seen them go off to the oilfields and rodeos To find a better way, they leave their native soil But I can hear a different song The drum within my heart is beating strong I want to follow it, I’ve got to walk the spirit trail Let every creature I see (whoa) be a brother and a friend to me Let every step that I take leave the footprints of a warrior Along the spirit trail… [Instrumental] Heya-heya heya hiyo (x4) [Instrumental] They took the land, they took control They robbed my father of his very soul To be like one of them, to be like one of them But I was born a native son And I will never be another one to give it all away I’ve got to walk the spirit trail Let every creature I see (whoa) be a brother and a friend to me Let every step that I take leave the footprints of a warrior Along the spirit trail… [Instrumental] Heya-heya heya hiyo (x3) Let every creature I see (whoa) be a brother and a friend to me Let every step that I take leave the footprints of a warrior Along the spirit trail… [Instrumental] [Drum fade away…]
