lyrics

A long time gone that they took what they wanted and
burned down what they didn’t without consequence -
without justice

Another sun up another dollar in the pocket of a
man who sits real high up in his office and thinks he owns the
air we breathe

Stand by your rivers
Stand up to the man
Don't let them take the earth
Stand up for your land

The cold cold winter of North Dakota and the burning sun of Texas
Won’t delay us
They can dig their holes and send their dogs but there’s
Nothing they can do that will dissuade us

We're gonna stand by our rivers
Stand up to the man
We won't let them take the earth
We're gonna stand up for our land

When we open up our eyes
We see our faces in the water
It should come as no surprise,
We are the children of the land

The people standing ‘round you
They are your sons and daughters
Stay beside them
Draw your line in the sand

Stand by your rivers
Stand up to the man
Don't let them take the earth
Stand up for your land

We're gonna stand by our rivers
Stand up to the man
We won't let them take the earth
We're gonna stand up for our land

Long time gone, they took what they wanted, they took what they wanted, they took what they wanted
Long time gone, they took what they wanted, they took what they wanted, they took what they wanted
Long time gone, they took what they wanted, they took what they wanted, they took what they wanted
Long time gone, they took what they wanted, they took what they wanted, they took what they wanted
