Shake the bear claws
and the rattle
You, with your buffalo robe,
your headdress all beaded
and feathered
Shells, stones, and
bone carvings
and your proud face,
now weathered.

Help me, reveal me,
I’d like you to heal me
Medicine Woman
I’m waiting for you;

You, with your headdress all beaded
and feathered
You, with your proud face
now lined, creased and weathered…

Heal me, reveal me
and stop these bad dreams
please put an end to
these merciless screams.

Let our young warriors
safely come home
from the place in the desert
where so many roam…
