THE RED ROAD

If you walk the Red Road, you know that every sorrow leads to a better understanding. . .

. . . Walking the Red Road is a metaphor for living within the Creator’s rules—a life of truth, friendship, respect, spirituality, and humanitarianism


"The Red Road" tells the story of a Native American truck driver. Arigon and her band went back into the recording studio in November 2004 to record the song that became the inspiration for her one-woman show. Coming soon -- the one-woman show "The Red Road" and a music video for this outstanding work of Native Americana!

Two formats for your listening pleasure!


"THE RED ROAD"

Trucking all through the night can be lonely
Especially when you're an Indian Okie
People stare at his long hair and braids
His ribbon shirt, his faded jeans and shades

He calls his rig "The Oklahoma Eagle"
Hauling loads then working for his People
Sweetgrass, sage and family fill his head
He'll live the Stomp Dance life until he's dead

CHORUS
The Red Road fills his soul
And he can carry any load you need
You need
He's an Indian loving life and liberty

He learned the trade from his Daddy long ago
He's not the only Indian on the road
Ponca friends are on CB right now
Let's have ourselves a truckin' Pow-Wow

At the old café
You listen to him to say to you
"You don't know what difference you can make"
As the trucks roll by
See the wisdom in his eyes
Living right is something you can't fake
