Cherokee Women

We are the Cherokee Women,
the strength of things to come.
We stand behind the Warrior,
for the battles he has won.

Many tears we have spilled,
falling upon Mother Earth.
Many Warriors we have seen,
not return to their home of birth.

We will keep the spirit,
the peace that we hold dear.
And pray for no more battles,
that brings death so very near.

For generations we have lost,
both Warriors and the land.
In unity we form a bond,
united in great pride we stand.
