The blood that courses through my veins Runs true to the Cherokee. I am the blood of my people. I am Cherokee.
The trail that my forefathers walked, Saturated in their tears, The trail has become my trial I listen with their ears.
I heard the wailing of the Cherokee Proud of the salty tears, I cry the tears of the Cherokee Even after all these years.
I walk the trail that they cried, I hear their voices frail, I bear the blood of the Cherokee. Damn this worthless trail.
'Trail Of Tears' of the Cherokee, Long remembered in shame. I cry out for the Cherokee. I wear the Cherokee name.
Hear me loud and hear me clear, No head hung in sorrow... For I am the proud Cherokee Waiting for tomorrow.
I will regain what my forefathers lost. I will stand and show my pride. And all the spirits of the lost Cherokee Will be standing at my side.
I am the proud Cherokee. You'd do well to remember my name. In the name of all Cherokee My rights I do reclaim. <~~~~~~~~> I am Cherokee <~~~~~~~~~~~~~~> I am Cherokee <~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~> I amCherokee
