CHIEF WHITE CLOUD had become a Christian minister in the later part of his life understanding there was a great need to bring his people to know the one true God.
Oh Great Sky Chief I'm standing here
On sacred ground remembering a day
When are people were so proud?
Oh Great Sky Chief it's me White Cloud
I have come before you on this sacred ground
Praying for the day our people are allowed
To live in the old ways
Oh Great sky Chief
Hear me loud for I stand here, still proud
I dream of a place where the white man
May never invade our space
When we can live one with the earth
Not leaving any trace of this very sacred place
Oh Great Sky Chief won't you shine upon your race
Don't let your people continue to live in disgrace
Help me to bring them to this very sacred place
Where we can live among ourselves face to face
We are the great Cherokee nation here our cry
We do not want to live a lie
This has killed the spirit of our nation
Oh, Great Sky Chief I must ask why
We are tired of hearing no
When the white men are the ones
That forced us to leave our lands
Know this Great Sky Chief
We pray this to you, in all of the old ways
In hopes you know of such a place
It's me White Cloud hear me now hear me proud
