Linda McCartney – Appaloosa lyrics

Chief Joseph and his tribe bred beautiful horses
On the banks of the Paloose River
The breed became known as the Appaloosa
Appaloosa stallion run so fast
Gallop through the canyon through the past
Lead your tribe to safety show the way
Cavalry gets closer every day
Once you ran through peaceful fields of grass
Once you drank from rivers clear and fast
Life for you was easy, full of love
Sleep beneath the yellow moon above
Then the foreign soldiers came from far across the sea
Stealing all the tribal land that once had been so free
Starving people that you love are crawling through the snow
Will they get across the border, heaven only knows
Appaloosa stallion run so fast
Gallop through the canyon through the past
Lead your tribe to safety show the way
Cavalry gets closer every day
Appaloosa stallion run so fast
Gallop through the canyon through the past
Lead your tribe to safety show the way
But the foreign soldiers came to stay
Then the foreign soldiers came from far across the sea
Stealing all the tribal land that once had been so free
Starving people that you love are crawling through the snow
Will they get across the border, heaven only knows
Appaloosa stallion run so fast
Gallop through the canyon through the past
Lead your tribe to safety show the way
But the foreign soldiers came to stay
