The light is long
The sun is low
I'm ridin' fast across this dusty road
But I don't want to be
No, I don't want to be

Above the ridge an eagle flies
In lazy circles in the western skies
I want to fly with him
I want to walk the spirit trail

I've seen them come
I've seen them go
Off to the oilfields and rodeos
To find a better way
They leave their native soil

But I can hear a different song
The drum within my heart is beatin' strong
I want to follow it
I've got to walk the spirit trail

Let every creature I've seen, whao ooo
Be a brother and a friend to me
Let every step that I take
Leave the footprints of a warrior
Along the spirit trail

Heya heya heya hiyo
Heya heya heya hiyo
Heya heya heya hiyo
Heya heya heya hiyo

They took the land
They took control
They robbed my father of his very soul
To be like one of them
To be like one of them

But I was born a native son
And I will never be another one
To give it all away
I've got to walk the spirit trail

Let every creature I'll seen, whao ooo
Be a brother and a friend to me
Let every step that I take
Leave the footprints of a warrior
Along the spirit trail

Heya heya heya hiyo
Heya heya heya hiyo
Heya heya heya hiyo

Let every creature I've seen, whao ooo
Be a brother and a friend to me
Let every step that I take
Leave the footprints of a warrior
Along the spirit trail

Brother

Heya heya heya hiyo
Heya heya heya hiyo
Heya heya heya hiyo
