CHEROKEE (STEVE DAFOE 2006)
(COPYRIGHTED)

CHORUS:

G Fmaj7 C (fast)
OH CHEROKEE, ONE OF GOD'S BLACK PEARLS
OH CHEROKEE, LEADER OF THE FOUR WIND'S
OH CHEROKEE, IS THERE A PLACE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN?
OH CHEROKEE,.......OH CHEROKEE

VERSE 1:

THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER
AS YOU GALLOP FAR AND WIDE
TRYIN' TO HIDE WHAT MAN HASN'T SEEN
WHERE HIS DESTRUCTIVE HAND HAS NOT BEEN
KEEP THIS WORLD AS YOUR OYSTER
'CAUSE GOD ONLY KNOWS YOU'VE TRIED

VERSE 2:

YOU'VE RUN THROUGH THE SAHARA
RACED HARD FROM SEA TO SEA
TRYIN' TO FIND ANY PIECE IF A DREAM
WHAT THEY'VE DONE TO EARTH IS JUST PLAIN MEAN
BUT THIS WORLD STILL IS YOUR OYSTER
'CAUSE YOUR STILL ONE WHO HOLDS A KEY

VERSE 3:

YOUR MANE IS A GLOSSY JET BLACK
THOUGH YOUR EYES SEEM TO JUST FADE AWAY
AND AS THE DUST RISES HIGH FROM THE POWER OF YOUR STRIDE
POWERING OVER THE RIVER YOU MADE FOR ALL THE TIMES YOU CRIED
KEEP THIS WORLD AS YOUR OYSTER
'CAUSE GOD ONLY KNOWS YOU'VE TRIED
