  1. Trail of Tears

I believe that it was Father God who woke me up one early morning, and has been performing some kind of a reconciatory work through this song for our awesome native folks.
I truly believe that this song is meant to heal hearts of all involved.
If anybody is offended by this song, except for those who are racially discriminatory without a real reason, then I sincerely apologize.
May the Spirit of God minister peace, love, and forgiveness to your hearts in Jesus loving and holy name. :)

This "trail of tears," as shameful and horrific as it was, it not without company.
There were also other death marches throughout history:
- the many and various prisoners of Nazi Germany during WWII
- Prisoners of the Japanese conflict in WWII
- the so-called minority citizens by the Ottoman government in Armenia
- the death march as directed by the North Koreans
- the death marches in Cambodia
- etc.

There was one man - the one man Jesus Christ - who was forced on His own death march from Jerusalem to the hill called Golgotha.
Once there, he was crucified until He gave up His own life for the sin of ALL humanity; even though He was 100% righteous and holy.
This He did for you and me.
I am so glad that I asked Him to forgive me for sinning against Him and others, and invited Him into my heart.
He now resides there as both Saviour AND Lord.
What a difference He has made in my life, even though others have hurt me and wished to take my life.
He can do the same for you, and fill you with the peace that can only come from God alone. :)

Lyrics

CHOCTAW, CHEROKEE, CHICKASAW, AND CREEK
SEMINOLE, MUSKOGEE, SAC, FOX, AND SLAVES
WAY YA, YAHWEH, YA HA, WAY YA, YAHWEH YA HA

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN GREED RULED THE LAND
PLANS WERE MADE TO MOVE THESE INDIAN BANDS
TO MAKE ROOM FOR THE GREEDY HEARTS OF MAN
AND MOVE THEM TO AN UNFAMILIAR LAND

THOUSANDS DIED ALONG THIS PERILOUS TRAIL
BY GUNS AND HUNGER, GREEDY MEN PREVAILED
FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR FERTILE NATIVE LAND
FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR NATIVE HUNTING GROUNDS

TRAIL OF TEARS, THOUSANDS PERISHED THERE
TRAIL OF TEARS, WE MUST BE MADE AWARE
TRAIL OF TEARS, WE REMEMBER TO THIS DAY
GOD FORGIVE US FOR OUR CRUELTY ON THIS TRAIL OF TEARS

WAY YA, YAHWEH, YA HA, WAY YA, YAHWEH YA HA

STILL TODAY THE GREED OF MAN PREVAILS
THE WICKED PLANS OF MAN STILL HARMS THE FRAIL
FATHER GOD COME CLEANSE THE HEARTS OF MEN
GRANT US A REVIVAL, THROUGH-OUT OUR SINFUL LAND

MAY THERE NEVER BE, ANOTHER TRAIL OF TEARS
MAY ALL RACIAL HATRED ALL BUT DISAPPEAR
HELP US SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS, OF JESUS THROUGH OUR LAND
GUIDING OUR DIRECTIONS, AND OUR MANY PLANS

TRAIL OF TEARS, THOUSANDS PERISHED THERE
TRAIL OF TEARS, WE MUST BE MADE AWARE
TRAIL OF TEARS, WE REMEMBER TO THIS DAY
GOD FORGIVE US FOR OUR CRUELTY ON THIS TRAIL OF TEARS

TRAILS OF TEARS, THEY HAPPEN EVERY YEAR
TRAILS OF TEARS, WE MUST BE MADE AWARE
TRAILS OF TEARS, WE REMEMBER TO THIS DAY
FATHER GOD MAY THERE BE, NO MORE TRAILS OF TEARS

WAY YA, YAHWEH, YA HA, WAY YA, YAHWEH YA HA
WAY YA, YAHWEH, YA HA, WAY YA, YAHWEH YA HA
YAHWEH, YA HA, YAHWEH, YA HA
