Lyrics

Sonora Saskatchewan
(David Borough)

Forty thousand years ago
The land gave birth to children
They fit her like an arrow fits a string
Mother’s growin’ older now
Her children can’t be quiet,
If you listen, you can sometimes hear them sing
Hey-ya hey-ya-hey hey ya hey

Uranium and the Navajo
Yellow mountains lay them low
The devil loose to run along the land
Lakota treaty provisions broken
Court decisions and the Black Hills stolen
You don’t take feathers from a blind old medicine man

The wind flows freely over the border,
Doesn’t seem to care which side she’s on
If I were wind my struggle would be over
Sonora Saskatchewan

The Sioux went north and the Apache South,
To rest from the bullets and the soldiers mounts
Men, women and children in the heart of the wind
Into Canada and to Mexico,
They slipped through the fingers of the conqueror
Livin’ in the land with the will to win

The wind flows freely over the border,
Doesn’t seem to care which side she’s on
If I were wind my struggle would be over
Sonora Saskatchewan
Sonora Saskatchewan
