What Would They Say

What would they say, if they came back today,
To see how their country had grown.
Where George Custer fell, and Crockett as well,
Their monuments hewn out of stone.
Cities now stand on the Indian land, and the Indians stand on their own.
There's driveways, and byways, and interstate highways.
And towns where the buffalo roamed.

Sung softly,
Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam.........(faded out)...
