Six Nations Caledonia

Grand River wide, slow, and deep
Six Nations wake from a long night's sleep
On the tracks, a blockade
Gonna stop the flow of the white man's trade
Caledonia

How come they don't have Iroqouis names
How come the judge won't hear their claims
Miles of land, each side of the river
Burned the note the cops delivered
Caledonia

Founding fathers, rising sons
Mothers, daughters all in one
They rolled a six, can't roll no seven
But all the kids gonna roll to heaven
Caledonia

Shut down the power, God save the queen
Truck on fire down at the scene
Warehouses of the reservations
Cigarettes smoking on six nations
Caledonia

Founding fathers, rising sons
Mothers, daughters all in one
They rolled a six can't roll no seven
But all the kids gonna roll to heaven
Caledonia

Grand River wide, slow, and deep
Six Nations wake from a long night's sleep
