“Indian Givers” – Neil Young [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

Neil Young “Indian Givers” Lyrics

There’s a battle raging on the sacred land
Our brothers and sisters had to take a stand
Against us now for what we all been doing
On the sacred land there’s a battle brewing

I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news

Now it’s been about five hundred years
We keep taking what we give away
This like what we call indian givers
It makes you sick and gives you shivers

I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news

Big money going backwards and ripping the soil
Where graves are scattered and blood was boiled
When all who look can see the truth
But they just move on and keep their groove

I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news

Saw Happy locked to the big machine
They had to cut him loose and you know what that means
That’s when Happy went to jail
Behind big money justice always fails

I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news

Bring back the days when good was good
Lose these imposters in our neighborhood
Across our farms and through our waters
At the cost of our sons and daughters

Yeah, our brave sons and beautiful daughters
We’re all here together fighting poison water
Standing against the evil way
That’s what we have at end of day

I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news
I wish somebody would share the news

Neil Young has shared a music video for his new acoustic rock song, “Indian Givers.” Watch it above, courtesy of Neil’s YouTube.

The political song and video deal with the oil duct known as Dakota Access Pipeline that is being built near Native American land in North Dakota. The nearby Standing Rock Sioux Reservation is trying to block the pipeline’s construction, and in the video, we see Native Americans protesting.

In 2014, Young released “Who’s Gonna Stand Up?,” another political song dealing with the Keystone XL pipeline, and his 2015 studio album The Monsanto Years took aim at corporations with lines like “Don’t talk about the Chevron millions going to the pipeline politicians.”
