Bob,

Another great tune! As has been repeatedly stated, this is about a very sad part of our nation's history. Very well presented, and I really like the ending.

Steve

That is historical poetry.

So many do not realize that many Cherokee were
farmers who owned land and their houses...and
they were literally torn away from it. Shameful,
indeed.

We love NA history so this is right in our wheelhouse
both historically and musically. The arrangement fits
the excellent vocal and lyric very effectively.

There's a ton of things to like about this.

J&B







J&B,


Thanks for listening and the kind comments. Interestingly, Osceola was actually Creek, not Seminole, and his father was a white man. Strange world.

We hear a lot about slavery, but little about the intentional genocide of the NA peoples.

Bob

Really nice story telling Bob!! And you did a great job of delivering it-vocal and arrangement work perfectly. Bruce Cockburn has a song called Indian Wars with a similar feel. You should check it out. Great job on this! Take care. Greg

Wow! What a wonderful song! The lyrics are suburb and the melody perfect. Your vocals here are spot on and the production tight.

Simply a superior song all around!

I'm glad I didn't miss this one.
