Now I will tell you buster that I ain't a fan of Custer

And the General he don't ride well anymore

To some he was a hero but to me his score was zero

And the General he don't ride well anymore

Now Custer done his fightin' without too much excitin'

And the General he don't ride well anymore

General Custer come in pumpin' when the men were out a huntin'

But the General he don't ride well anymore

With victories he was swimmin' he killed children dogs and women

But the General he don't ride well anymore

Crazy Horse sent out the call just to Sitting Bull and Gall

And the General he don't ride well anymore

Now Custer split his men well he won't do that again

Cause the General he don't ride well anymore

Twelve thousand warriors waited they were unanticipated

And the General he don't ride well anymore

It's not called an Indian victory but a bloody massacre

And the General he don't ride well anymore

There might have been more enthusin' if us Indians had been losin'

But the General he don't ride well anymore

General George A.Custer oh his yellow hair had lustre

But the General he don't ride well anymore

For now the General's silent he got bombarded violent

And the General he don't ride well anymore

Oh the General he don't ride well anymore
