Sitting Bull In Venice
Tom Russell Lyrics


Look at me, brave Sitting Bull, in this gondola canoe
Bill Cody brings us smoke and meat, so what are we to do?
I came across the water, in a boat no man could row
To play war in front of strangers, in Cody's Wild West Show

Whoopa ti, whoopa ti-I-Yo

I have seen their Eiffel Tower and the wonders of their world
Saloons where drunken white men stared at naked dancing girls
And I close my eyes, see the Big Horn Valley, harvest moons ago
The bloody hair of Custer, hanging from our victory pole

Whoopa ti, whoopa ti-I-Yo
Whoopa ti, whoopa ti-I-Yo

See me staring calmly from your magic photograph
In this gondola canoe, am I about to cry or laugh?
My spirit rides with Red Cloud, Black Bear and Buffalo
My dreams fly with the heron, the grey crane and the crow

Whoopa ti, whoopa ti-I-Yo
Whoopa ti, whoopa ti-I-Yo
