Lyrics:You think I'm an ignorant savage
and you've been so many places
I guess it must be so, but
still I can not see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don't
know

You think you own whatever land you land on
the earth is just a dead thing you
can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a
name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like
you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You learn things you never knew
You
never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon?
or ask the
grinning bobcat why he grinned
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you
paint with all the colours of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colours of the
wind?

Come run the hidden pinetrails of the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries
of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once never wonder what
they're worth

The rainstorm and the rivers are my brothers
And the heron and the
otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle in a hoop that
never ends

How high does the sycamore grow
If you cut it down, then you'll never
know

And you'll never hear the wolf cry
To the blue corn moon
For whether we
are white or copper-skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
Need to
paint with all the colours of the wind
You can own the Earth and still all you'll own is
earth
Until you can paint with all the colours of the wind
