Lyrics

Standing Rock

 

Words and Music by Brent Godfrey     © 2016

 

 

Intro Instrumental

 

V1Underneath the blue dakota sky it?s time to take a stand

To protect our children?s water and ancestral sacred land

 

 

Chorus     I stand with standing rock I stand with standing rock

    (We won?t sell our mother for oil     We won?t sell our mother for oil)

    Water is Life    Defend the Sacred    Water is Life     Defend the Sacred

    Water is Life    Defend the Sacred

 

 

V2 They fired water cannon in the winter?s freezing cold

Attacked with dogs and rubber bullets in their lust for the black gold

 

Chorus

 

 

V3We won?t respond to hate with violence we will stand brave and tall

Evicting us won?t silence us   More will come to heed the call

 

 

Chorus

 

Inst V

Inst Chorus

 

V4Armored vehicles and razor wire to protect the black snake

Respect the water.   Respect the Land.  Before it is too late

 

 

Chorus
