Walkin' Jim Stoltz - Spirit Is Still On The Run lyrics


G C G D
1) Daddy, what ever happened to the old buffalo, I know
they don't roam here no more,
G C
Because at school today, they say they've gone away,
G D G
But no one ever says just what for.
C G
Well now listen my son, I'll tell you how the west was
won,
D
How the herds fell to the big needle guns,
G C
But the ghosts of them herds still pound o'er the
earth,
G D G
And their spirit is still on the run.
Chorus:
C G D
Yes, their spirit is still on the run, it's the
American dream movin' on,
G C G D G
Their memory is free, left to you and to me, and the
Spirit is still on the run.
2) Daddy, what ever happened to the ol' grizzly bear,
I know he once roamed the west wide,

But at school today they say he's pushed back to stay,
In the mountains where he has to hide.
Well, now listen my son, I'll tell you about these
proud ones,
Where they stalk, all others walk small,
But man to his shame, can't stand the untamed,
And there's some that wouldn't have him at all.
(Chorus)
3) Daddy, what ever happened to the big piney forests,
And the prairies that stretched out like seas,
Because the schoolbooks they say, these were all in the
way,
When the settlers come a-swarmin' like bees,
Now, listen my son, I'll tell you how all these have
gone,
It's sad tale all filled with shame
Their lifesblood was bought and with the spirit it
brought,
A whole country was born into fame.
Bridge: C G
And all that have died or been swept to the side,
C D
They still give us hope every one,
G C G C
They give us dreams of the free, what has been and can
be,
G C D
And their spirit is still on the run.
(Final Chorus)
