Big Foot Lyrics

(Johnny Cash)
© '72 Song Of Cash Music, ASCAP

Big Foot was an Indian chief of the Miniconioux Band
A band of Miniconioux Sioux from South Dakota land
Big Foot said to Custer stay away from Crazy Horse
But Custer crossed into Sioux land and he never came back across
Then Big Foot led his people to a place called Wounded Knee
And they found themselves surrounded by the 7th Calvary
Big chief Big Foot rise up from your bed
Miniconioux babies cry for their mothers lying dead
Big Foot was down with the fever when he reached Wounded Knee
And his people all were prisoners of the 7th Calvary
Two hundred women and children and another hundred men
Raised up a white flag of peace but peace did not begin
An accidental gunshot and Big Foot was first to die
And over the noise of the rifles you could hear the babies cry
Big chief Big Foot it's good that you can't see
Revenge is being robbed by Custer's 7th Calvary
Then smoke hung over the canyon on the cold December day
All was dead and dying around where Big Foot lay
Farther on up in the canyon some had tried to run and hide
But death showed no favors women men and children died
One side called that masacre the other a victory
But the white flag is still waving today at Wounded Knee
Big chief Big Foot your Miniconioux band
Is mourned and remembered here in South Dakota land
Big chief Big Foot your Miniconioux band
Is mourned and remembered here in South Dakota land
