I was a red man
I was proud, I was strong
You were the white man
And you stole away my home

Now I am a wooden Indian
Painted dreams inside my head
Time's the way you bring me down
Make me wish that I was dead

Na na na na na, na
Na na na na na
Na na na na na, na
Na na na na na

I was a red man
In my passing made no sound
You were the white man
And you drove me in the ground

Now I am a wooden Indian
Standing silent in the rain
Swear by my grandfather's father
We're gonna rise again

Na na na na na na
Na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na

I was a red man
I was proud, I was strong
You were the white man
And you stole away my home

Now I am a wooden Indian
Standing silent in the rain
Swear by my grandfather's father
We're gonna rise again
