The Peltier Song (One Bright And Shining Morning)

[html5mp3small:6299]

Lakota and Anishinaabe
An Indian man took a stand
Though innocent he’s locked away
Is this the American way?

Twenty-four years have come and gone
Since prison walls swallowed up Peltier
Living through hell every day
Hear the words I say

CHORUS

One bright and shining morning
He shall be free
One bright and shining morning
Peltier will be free

His light shines in the dark
For those who did not survive
I sing this song to spread the word
Don’t believe the lies you’ve heard

We pray for peace and for change
And a chance to tell the truth
I’m praying for you every day
Hear the words I say

CHORUS
