INDIAN RESERVATION
written by John D. Loudermilk
performed by Paul Revere and the Raiders
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo 

A7 - 2 - / / D / / / 2 / / / 3
                             G
They took the whole Cherokee nation
                    D
Put us on this reservation
(for rest of verse, repeat pattern of above 2 lines):
Took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the Bowie knife
Took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

CHORUS:

G  (break)       / D (break)      /
 Cherokee people,   Cherokee tribe
G  (break)        / A7            D
 So proud to live,    so proud to die

Verse 2:
They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation
Though I wear a shirt and tie
I'm still a red man deep inside

(chorus)

Verse 3:
But maybe someday when they've learned
The Cherokee nation will return
(vocal crescendo):
D
Will return, will return, will return, will return!
