from Y Kant Tori Read demo, 1985
lyrics by Tori Ellen Amos, music by Tori Ellen Amos and Steve Caton


Lyrics by Tori Amos

Cherokee, Africa
Hey, why can't we ever learn
Hear the cry in Africa
You can take away our job
You can take away our home
But the morning star
Shall rise and shine upon
Our soul
We are our Own Master

Marching on the trail of tears
Home of the brave
Heaven help us
Turn this world around
All men are FREE, FREE

Safely sheltered in the States
And is justice just a tool
That we build our own rules to
Save us
Save us

Marching on the trail of tears
Home of the brave
Heaven help us
Turn this world around
All men are FREE, FREE

Cherokee, Africa
Cherokee, Africa
