about

This song was inspired by an incident that took place on the Fort Hall Reservation outside Pocatello, Idaho

lyrics

I’ll Make You a Drum

Many moons many suns
Over 99 years
The buffalo died on the wise open range
So the great spirit left
So we sell cigarettes
And the warriors dance on the Idaho plains

Will you make me a drum
Will you make me a drum
So I can make thunder
And bring back the sun
When the trees come alive
When the deer start to run
When the trees come alive
I will make you a drum

I heard sounds in my heart
I felt pain in my ears
The fence made of laws
To keep us all here
I will run like the wind
I will fight like a bear
You can’t buy my heart
And you don’t own the air

Will you make me a drum
Will you make me a drum
So I can make thunder
And bring back the sun
When the trees come alive
When the deer start to run
When the trees come alive
I will make you a drum

In a house made of wood
In the shape of a square
My body might be
But my spirit’s not there
In a circle of strength
In a warrior’s will
The sound of the soul
It’s a sound you can feel


Will you make me a drum
Will you make me a drum
So I can make thunder
And bring back the sun
When the trees come alive
When the deer start to run
When the trees come alive
I will make you a drum

Oh will you make me a drum
Will you make me a drum
So I can make thunder
And bring back the sun
When the trees come alive
When the deer start to run
When the trees come alive
I will make you a drum

Oh will you make me a drum
Will you make me a drum
So I can make thunder
And bring back the sun
When the trees come alive
When the deer start to run
When the trees come alive
I will make you a drum

Make me a drum
So I can make thunder
And bring back the sun
When the trees come alive
When the deer start to run
When the trees come alive
I will make you a drum

Oh will you make me a drum
Will you make me a drum
So I can make thunder
And bring back the sun
When the trees come alive
When the deer start to run
When the trees come alive
I will make you a drum
