  I am cherokee

The blood that courses through my veins.
Runs true to the cherokee.
I am the blood of my people.
I am cherokee.
The trail that my forefathers walked,
Saturated in their tears,
The trail has become my trail
I listen with their ears.
I heard the wailing of the cherokee.
Proud of the salty tears.
I cry the tears of the cherokee
Even after all these years.
I walk the trail that they cried
I hear their voices frail
I bear the blood of the cherokee
Damn this worthless trail.
Trail of tears of the cherokee,
Long remembered in shame
I cry out for the cherokee
I wear the cherokee name.
Hear me loud and hear me clear
No head hung in sarrow
For i am the proud cherokee
Waiting for tomarrow.
I will regain what my my forefathers lost
I will stand and show my pride
And all the spirits of the lost cherokee
Will be standing at my side.
I am the proud cherokee
You'd do well to remember my name
In the name of all cherokee
My rights i do reclaim
I am cherokee
I am cherokee
I am cherokee
