RESERVATION RAGTIME BLUES
Rise Again Truth, the CD

The inspiration for this song comes from the music and times of Scott Joplin. Although things have changed, things really haven’t changed. Especially for people of color. There is more access to democracy for us, but less proof of it actually existing.

 

 

 

RESERVATION RAGTIME BLUES

It’s l ike being removed from the situation
but still we feel the pain and the frustration.

It’s like a babylon, a babylon vacation.

In the middle of their military occupation.
They stole our lives, left us with this reservation.

We’ve got no money, all we’ve got is a reservation.

Memories of life before they came our way
Are deeply embedded in our very nature.
Memories like that don’t just fade away,
Not even after more than 10,000 years.

We can survive, we can wait it out.
Their time won’t last, their time’s running out.

We can survive, we can wait it out.
Their time won’t last, their time’s running out.

I know there’s a way back to Jah Way of living.
I know there’s a way back to Jahweh,
the natural way.

I know there’s a way back to Jah Way,
I know there’s a way back to Yahweh,
the natural way.
