Song From Platte River

     
 

I was freezing on the banks of Platte River

And I was thinking of General Custer and his last stand

And I bowed my head, what has he done

Heís got my freedom on the run

 

I was thinking how they shot Mister Lincoln

And I remember all the mountains that he made

And I bowed my head, what have they done

Theyíve got my freedom on the run

 

The River is wide and itís wicked

But it ends where thereís peace for one and all

 

I was thinking of the measure of my weakness

Like so many I condemn and do not know

And I bowed my head, what have we done

We've got our freedom on the run

 

The River is wide and itís wicked

But it ends where thereís peace for one and all
