Boss said, Mac, I need to see you
Its Friday afternoon about five
We had to make some cuts around here
Sorry, Mac, you wont survive

He sat there stunned in silence
The hard words ringing in his ears
Couldnt believe all the years hed given
Suddenly had disappeared

His first thought was, How do I tell her
That I lost my job today?
As he left he felt so wounded
And his boss just slipped away

He wondered wheres the justice
When I gave it everything I got?
And driving home the fire kicked in
And the feeling sorry for himself just stopped

He said, I aint gonna go the way of the buffalo
I will not go quietly the way that they want us to be
Driven from the only life weve known
I aint gonna go the way of the buffalo

He held her close as he told her the news
Prepared for her to cry
As the afternoon sun was going down
He saw a different look in her eyes

She said, Baby youve always been my hero
So hold your head up tall and proud
Let them take away everything we own
But we aint going down

We aint gonna go the way of the buffalo
No, we will not go quietly the way that they want us to be
Driven from the only life weve known
We aint gonna go the way of the buffalo

As they stood there in the darkness
She reached out and took his hand
She whispered, Remember, baby, you have the blood of everyone
Whos ever had to make a stand
Whos ever had to find a brand new land

And we aint gonna go the way of the buffalo
No, we will not go quietly the way that they want us to be
Driven from the only life weve known
We aint gonna go the way of the buffalo

And, baby, who knows whats waiting out there?
As long as we got each other, baby, I dont care
