Indian Time

Lyrics: Brian Godchaux
Music: Brian Godchaux

The sun rises up over the teepee top
The laughing of children, the barking of dogs
Down by the creek, where the water runs sweet
And the time is Indian, it's Indian time

There is no trouble, there is no town
The rolling thunder comes rolling down
The men are brave, and the women all strong
And the time is Indian, it's Indian time

Oh, hear the crickets sing
I hear the crickets sing
Allelujah
The crickets sing
I hear the crickets sing
Allelujah

Captain, captain, please don't go
Down to the creek where the Indians are
Down to the creek, where the water is sweet
And the time is Indian, it's Indian time

Trouble, trouble, you do not know
What you're doing, you know not what you do
The white buffalo is on the hill
And the time is Indian, it's Indian time

Oh, hear the crickets sing
I hear the crickets sing
Allelujah
The crickets sing
I hear the crickets sing
Allelujah

So long ago, so far away
Anyway, that's what people say
Go inside and close the door
There is no Indian time no more

I don't believe this can be true
Tell me otherwise what I do
The hawks and the eagles in the sky
Say it still is Indian time

Oh, hear the crickets sing
I hear the crickets sing
Allelujah
The crickets sing
I hear the crickets sing
Allelujah
