 They were here before the settlers arrived
They lived off the land, they knew how to survive
But after the great white spirit came
They lost both their land and their fame

There were many native American tribes
Dakota, Apache, Cherokee, to name a few
But from the Apache tribe a legend grew
To his people he was a hero 
The legendary warrior known as Geronimo

In battle he was known to kill
With both the gun or the knife
Many an enemy lost their lives
To the heroic Apache's skill

In 1909 Geronimo died
And he was buried in Fort Sill
On  Apachean  winds his spirit still rides
And his name is used in battle still

    He was such a great man, and many movies were made about him though I think only the most recent ones were historically more accurate. Nicely done.
