1885 Part II – Resistance

There’s a church on the hill, and the water’s lying still,
You can hear the church bells sleeping,
If we ride all night, we can make a day of time,
Before the Canadian troops arrive.

We’ve got to ride through the valley,
Ride through the valley,
There’s a full moon over the valley,
We’ve got to ride through the valley.

Sage grouse clucking in the coulee,
Whitetail hiding in the trees,
Gun in my hand, and horse by my side,
Going to join Riel on his ride.

The train’s coming soon,
It’s going to bring a thousand troops,
But I can’t fear that night,
Nothing left but to ride.
