[Verse]
       C          Am                G
Indian legislation on the desk of a do-right Congressman
        C                         F
Now, he don't know much about the issue
            G
so he picks up the phone and he asks advice from the
C              Am
Senator out in Indian country
F                G
A darling of the energy companies who are
Am                 F                  G
ripping off what's left of the reservations. Huh.

[Pre-Chorus]
            G
I learned a safety rule
             Am
I don't know who to thank
               G              E
Don't stand between the reservation and the
Am
corporate bank
     G
They send in federal tanks
         E                Am
It isn't nice but it's reality

[Chorus]
                         C    Bb F
Bury my heart at Wounded Knee
            C     Bb F
Deep in the Earth
                     C    Bb F
Cover me with pretty lies
                         C         Bb F
bury my heart at Wounded Knee. Huh.

[Verse]
               G                     Am
They got these energy companies that want the land
                G               E
and they've got churches by the dozen who want to
Am
guide our hands
         G                        E
and sign Mother Earth over to pollution, war and
Am
greed

[Chorus]
                         C    Bb F
Bury my heart at Wounded Knee
            C     Bb F
Deep in the Earth
                     C    Bb F
Cover me with pretty lies
                         C         Bb F
bury my heart at Wounded Knee. Huh.

[Verse]
           G
We got the federal marshals
           Am
We got the covert spies
           G            E
We got the liars by the fire
           Am
We got the FBIs
            G
They lie in court and get nailed
          E                   Am
and still Peltier goes off to jail

[Chorus]
                         C    Bb F
Bury my heart at Wounded Knee
            C     Bb F
Deep in the Earth
                     C    Bb F
Cover me with pretty lies
                         C         Bb F
bury my heart at Wounded Knee. Huh.

[Verse]
              G                      Am
My girlfriend Annie Mae talked about uranium
             G           E               Am
Her head was filled with bullets and her body dumped
    G                               E
The FBI cut off her hands and told us she'd died of
Am
exposure

[Chorus]
                         C    Bb F
Bury my heart at Wounded Knee
            C     Bb F
Deep in the Earth
                     C    Bb F
Cover me with pretty lies
                         C         Bb F
bury my heart at Wounded Knee. Huh..

[Verse]
           G
We had the Goldrush Wars
              Am                           G
Aw, didn't we learn to crawl and still our history gets
E            Am
written in a liar's scrawl
         G                                E
They tell ‘ya “Honey, you can still be an Indian

d-d-down at the ‘Y'
Am
on Saturday nights”

[Chorus]
                         C    Bb F
Bury my heart at Wounded Knee
            C     Bb F
Deep in the Earth
                     C    Bb F
Cover me with pretty lies
                         C         Bb F
bury my heart at Wounded Knee. Huh.
