Indian Reservation Don Fardon (#20 in 1968), Paul Revere and the Raiders (#1 in 1971)
AKA “The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian”
They took the whole Cherokee Nation
Put us on this reservation
Took away our way of life
Tomahawk and the bow and knife
Took away our native tongue
Taught their English to our young.
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

    Cherokee people,
    Cherokee tribe
    So proud you lived
    So proud you died 

They took the whole Indian Nation
Locked us up on this reservation
Though I wear a shirt and tie
I’m still a red man deep inside

But maybe someday when they’ve learned
Cherokee Nation will return.
