Europe – Cherokee lyrics
Oh, ho, ho, ho, whoa, oh

They lived in peace
Not long ago
A mighty Indian tribe

But the winds of change
Had made them realize
That the promises were lies

The white man's greed
In search of gold
Made the nation bleed

They had lost their faith
And now they had to learn
There was no place to return
No where they could turn

Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears
Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears

They were driven hard
Across the plains
And hoped for many moons

Cause the winds of change
Had made them realize
That the promises were lies

So much to bear
And all that pain
Left them in despair

They had lost their faith
And now they had to learn
There was no place to return
No where they could turn

Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears
Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears, oh

Yeah, yeah, yeah

(Guitar and synth solos)

Oh, ho, ho, oh, oh

Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears
Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears, oh

Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears
Cherokee, oh
Marching on the Trail of Tears, oh...

    This song is based on a true story about a American Indian tribe and how they suffered by the white man's greed and made them leave their homes in the chorus marching on the trail tears where a lot of the Cherokee people died. It's such a sad song but still it's such great song a native American drumming intro and the keyboards and guitar kick in but it's a great and also this track gives me goosebumps. It's one of their songs you really have listen to.
