Iím gonna take a journey, yeah

Itís gonna last me a lifetime

A close friend once told me that a lifetimeís not so long

On the Buffalo Road, Buffalo Road, pick up your load

Move on down the Buffalo Road

 

Mmmm, the medicine wheels are turning

Keep the campfires burning

On the Buffalo Road, pick up your load

Move on down the Buffalo Road

 

Child of the city what do you see?

Will it chain you down? Ė Will it set you free?

 

Iím sure youíll find a reason

Hiding in the seasons

On the Buffalo Road, pick up your load

Move on down the Buffalo Road

 

Aaaaah, my feet are burning

And the stars are hard to reach

The day that you start learning

Is the day that you start to teach peace

 

All the teachers are learning

To keep the campfires burning

On the Buffalo Road, pick up your load

Move on down the Buffalo Road

 

Listen to the thunder

Look into the fire

Let your spirits wonder

Let them rise forever higher

 

Listen to the thunder

Look into the flames

As long as you may wonder

The vision stays the same

 

Aaaaah, the medicine drums are pounding

Keep your heartís song sounding

On the Buffalo Road, pick up your load

Move on down the Buffalo Road

Move on down

 

Where did the red man go?

Heís on the Buffalo Road

Whereís the red man gone?

Heís movin' on

Heís movin' on

 

Crazy that might sound

Take the buffalo round

To the happy hunting grounds

Here we go

Buffalo Road

 

Move on down the Buffalo Road

Move on down yeah hey

Move on down
