song Description:

A protest folk song from 1971 that summarizes the history of US settler-colonialism and imperialism. (lyrics) Oh, many, many ages ago Red people lived alone At peace with the buffalo Oh, they’re living on stolen goods. To make money they came The Anglos and their slaves For housework they had their dames Oh, they’re living on stolen goods. And they brought with them their guns And whipped and shot Black ones They brainwashed their children Oh, they’re living on stolen goods. And westward ho! they marched And shot down the reds who tried to resist And this whole land they robbed Oh, they’re living on stolen goods. And they cramped the red people in camps And they ghettoized the Blacks And now they’re into Asia Oh, they’re living on stolen goods. Amerika, your riches Are based on your robbery You rich fascists are doomed ‘Cause you’re living on stolen goods. Yes, many, many ages ago Red people lived alone At peace with the buffalo Oh, they’re living on stolen goods.
