red brother red sister lyrics – bruce cockburn

went to the museum, red brother
saw your ancient bloom cut, pressed and dried
a sign said wasn’t it clever what they used to do
but it never did say how they died

hey hey hey
hey hey hey

went to regina, red sister
heard a cab driver say what he’d seen
‘there’s a grand place to eat out on number one
all white ladies if you know what i mean’

hey hey hey
hey hey hey

went to a pow wow, red brother
felt the people’s love/joy flow around
it left me crying just thinking about it
how they used my saviour’s name to keep you down

hey hey hey
hey hey hey
